Hi all

I am a bit stumped. On all the tabs for the picking part of this song, it really looks like it might be in 3/4 this right??

Also can someone give me an idea of the tempo in bpm?

Help appreciated

I'm not with my guitar right now, nor my metronome, but from memory I would gues it's in 4/4 with the timeing being 1,2,3, &4& (if that makes any sense) . What I'm trying to get across is that the last three beats of the measure are of shorter duration than the first three. Not being well versed in musical notation I would guess it's a 1/4, 1/4,1/4 , triplet thing.
BPM (according to the beat in my head) seems like around 140.

All mental guesswork here on my part, so take it for what it's worth.
