Good question. If you want a click on each beat, you’d have to double the BPM I have listed on the practice tracks.

I normally set my practice tracks and metronome for 2 clicks per measure (beats 1 and 3).

There’s a few reasons I do this:

1. It mimics a bluegrass bass player playing on the 1 and 3.

2. It helps you build your internal sense of timing by having to fill beats 2 and 4.

3. At high tempos, it’s hard to hear that many clicks

But you can definitely double the BPM and play along to your metronome that way as well.

If you have any more questions let me know.
