comment The saddest chord?
Oops. My song is a bad example. That's not a diminished chord, it's a minor chord with a major 7th. That's a chord I usually associate with suspense. It's often used as a sting in 1960s spy shows like The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Hi, Scott. Welcome to MP&T. Can you edit to be more specific about what's giving you difficulty?

comment How to keep from tensing up when I click the metronome faster?
But, I fear the full version a tempo may not actually be humanly possible. It works out to 24 notes per second, and left-hand changes have to happen in that 1/24th-second interval between the last note and the first one of the next figure. .... It may take another 10 years, but it's gonna be amazing once I nail it. :) I imagine that it may even produce a subharmonic effect.

+1 Useful ideas that speak to the question that I posted. I'm always trying to attack problems from multiple angles. ... For my actual goal, I have partly done this already and I've broken down the piece into several simplified versions, and even developed a new technique I can play the synchronous version a tempo (1/8=120bpm), the triplet version at 100bpm, the sextuplet version at 80bpm, and the full dodecatuplet at 60.

comment How I do memorize guitar notes?
It is a correct interpretation of the rules to close this as a dup and revise the old question with the new content and re-open it. But, since the old one is already closed and this one seems ok on its own, it really appears that in the case the best course of action is to do nothing. The desired result is a good question with good answers. And we're there. We have that now. It could use more answers as usual, but that doesn't detract from my point: it doesn't serve any useful purpose to close this question simply because OP failed to express clearly the same idea earlier. IMO.

Exactly. Play it "too long". It's beyond sadness. It's agony.
