Live BPM

Look up some live performances by your favorite drummers on YouTube and check them with liveBPM. Unless they're using a click, variations of even 5 or 6 bpm total are not uncommon, especially with more complicated drum parts. I've seen double-digit variations on some performances.

I use the app a lot and it can be valuable. But obsessing over it can have a negative effect on your playing as you try to overcompensate. Not to mention the damage it can do to your self-confidence, which in some ways might be your most important asset as a player.

Just my two cents.
