or just search google for a bpm counter.
or go on chemical records and have a look at the releases.

most producers tend to stick the same bpms 90% of the time.

hahaha this is soooooo simple. U count how many beats there are in a minute.

sorry to be patronising but it does what it says on the tin. I member my music tech teacher smacking a few students on the head with a roll of papers for asking this question and refused to answer it. There wud always be a question in the exam of "what bmp is this song?" which was EASY marks as it wud be multiple choice so just count how many beat there are in 20 secs and x3 for a ruff estimate but take it all the way to a minute if u reli wanna get it right.

Also whilst I'm on the subject I was sooooo happy to find that a Shy Fx track was one of the questions on my paper last year. I got a B for the exam aswell.

HAHAHA my bad. Im defo not bmp if any1s thinking i am. Check their members list if u want. Its public now hahahaha.

Although BMP are strong in my area and have a seat in the next constituency to mine. They came round knocking on my door once without telling me they were bmp saying "hi were here to help tackle knife and gun crime, would you like to sign our petition and be apart of our register" it was only half way thru sigining it whn i asked which organisation he was with. I crossed out my name, told him to fuck off and not be so sly with getting people to sign up to ur joke of a party.

Sly tactics i tell ye!
SLY!!!!

well counting the beats in a minute is kinda difficult, just count 30 secs multiple it by two three different times and add the three together and divide by 3 will give you the avg bpm. Its not hard or you can get this lil gadget i picked up from berhringer ( bpm counter) you press the button each kick and after 8 times it calulates the bpm . cake man hope this helps

What ive found is the best way is to use your fingers... EASY... when you run out of fingers just use your toes... but im afraid it all goes a bit pear shapped once you get above 20bpm....
