Nice - but needs to have slower practice tempos

Nice! Much more fun to play with drum loops for groove. However, limited bpm range reduces the app's utility. Need slower than 60 bpm for practicing tricky passages and locking in the basics. Also, some of the jazz rhythms (for example Swing Brushes) are in double time. It would add utility to keep bpms on quarter notes rather than switching to half notes for some rhythms -- that would mean also expanding upper range of bmp. That said, it is understandable that finding a 'valid' tempo range for all styles is challenging.

I got this app on my phone a few days ago hoping I can work on my timing on the guitar because that's one thing that I rarely practice. Using a metronome always just felt unnatural and weird to me, so I stayed away from using it which has been a huge mistake because now all my loops are crazy timing messes. I figured there must be a way an app that where I can use a drum loop as a "metronome" and luckily found this gem. It's stupidly easy to use and has tons of drum loops to spice up any practice session.

Drum Beats+

I have been using this App for a year or so now, every day, for practice. I think it is easy to use and a very fast way to get straight to practicing my guitar without any hassle. I am not interested in learning how to write a drum part in a drum program nor have the time to do it. I just find the rhythm I want and go. I have never had a problem with it in either the old or new version for crashing or not working as it should. This is a great App and I recommend it to anyone.
