Sleeping with metronom
 
Hey,

the last time i was alawys going to sleep with my metronom. I had always a special tempo on it, 140bpm next day 160bpm etc.

Over the night the brain is able to learn. And my one saved the different tempi i was listening too.

Now i can count without a metronom exactly 140bpm, 160bpm et cetera (are you using the word "et cetera" in America/Uk?).

With the Tapfunction i can see this.
:) Its funny and i think if anyone here has timingproblems he should try this out.
THis is giving you a feel for different tempi for a long time.

Ps:. Thats something you can do 3-4 times but not more often ^^ We need our sleep :)
But in holidays where you can spend a lot of time in you bed, its ok.

i did that once, but it was my drum machine set to a clave', i remember waking up in the night feeling quite annoyed,, perhaps it works though?, i then turned it down in volume the next time i did it.

what an interessting idea. I mean, I have to try this!
Good one Tobi, I guess that this will improve your tempo feeling pretty much, that is cool!

Hey Karl,

that's cool. Tell me if you liked it!
I guess that this will improve my tempofeeling.
But if you put the metro much to high it isn't good for your pulse and your sleep...sooo
try it out 1-2 times per week but not more and not with 280bpm :D .

Sounds pretty weird to me. But it just might work!

I have never slept with a click on... But I have heard a metronome in my sleep a few times. Now that is disturbing!

"I have never slept with a metronome before."

HA, now I kow what`s that thread about! ;-)
I guess the kids will have killer timing.

I apologize...just kidding.

Again it is interessting, I`ll see how it affects my timing.

I would be unable to sleep, irritable the next day, and too sleepy to keep time.

I think I'll just run a click to my in-ears when I feel the need for help keeping time.

Good luck with that sleep-deprivation....ahem..... I mean sleep-learning thing though!

Exident 02-26-2007 09:31 PM

Re: Sleeping with metronom
 
Hey,

like a already said, thats nothing i would do for 1 month or anything like this.
Thats something cou can try out one times.

And i will do it again if i want to. But thats not my everyday-sleep-ritual.

If i would do it everyday in two months I would find myself back in menthal house ^^

Re: Sleeping with metronom
 
Seems like a weird idea to me but I may give it a try once or twice. But only on the weekends when I can make up for the lost sleep.

By the way, in America we usually abbreviate et cetera to etc.. So it's 140bpm, 160bpm, etc.

The thought of Kate Beckinsale sleeping with a battery-powered pulsing object is rather exciting to me for some reason.

My old roomate slept with Pink Floyd's The Wall playing every night. He is now in the mental ward.

I don't recommend sleeping with any clicks or metronomes. Not good for your sleep and I'm doubtful about helping your tempo, timing, or feeling. There are better things to sleep with to help with them...

Bad idea. You could get Captain Hook Syndrome after a while and go insane the next time you watch the Crocodile Hunter.

I don't see how it would help. I would think it would take weeks for you to use the same tempo night after night before it becomes ingrained. You could do it quicker by starting to play with a metronome, shutting it off and trying to keep the tempo. Then turn it back on and see how close you are to the tempo.

Ahahahah...

I used to listen to strange ambient loops I created while sleeping. Now I have to have perfect silence in order to sleep.

I got a BeatBug from luglock.com . As this little gem tells you what tempo you are playing at you can sleep with something a bit warmer than a metronome.

Hey Everyone,

i really have to repeat that I did this 3-4 times in holidays.
I would never do this while school!
I know that this is not good for my health but how many of you are drinking ore smoking?
Thats the same and im not drinking or smoking :D
So if i will do this 3-4 times in holidays i think it is ok because its much fun to me :D

Im not a native speaker! Ive never been in a mental house..i wrote it wrong.
BACK was to much ^^

I used to sleep with the metronome going way back in college. I had a single room so didn't have to worry about buggin' a roomie or anything.

If yer gonna have someone sleep over I recommend a nice slow speed!

Re: Sleeping with metronom
 
Batteries would probably die out for me. But i think i would be driven nuts by the constant beeping and not able to sleep. Im kind of an insomniac so I would be up for a while anyways. (some of you on the west coast might have seen me on the forum at about 1 am, which for me is 4 am.).

I have done the same thing with daytime practice

Re: Sleeping with metronom
 
A few years back I had a job which kept me alone for a half hour once or twice a day, so I'd bring my little Boss DB-12 along and set it to the tempo of a song I had in my head at the time, just letting the song loop over and over in my mind and getting that groove ingrained in me.

Of course there's no scientific evidence that it's helped, but I think it did.. a lot.

I can just imagine asking my wife to have that thing clicking all night...

SketcHyRollin564 03-01-2007 06:10 AM

Re: Sleeping with metronom
 
Theres no way i could fall asleep to a metronome. Mabey if i set it to the tempo of a song i had playing int he background, but id have a playlist of songs, since it takes me about 20 minutes to fall asleep, and the tempos wouldnt be the same.


And this is a little late, but yes, in america we commonly use the word "et cetera", but when we type it or write it, we almost ALWAYS abreviate it by typing "etc."

Theres little kids that know what "etc." means, but they didnt know the real word was et cetera, so they go around physicaly saying "this, and that, E.T.C."

JCM 03-03-2007 01:38 AM

Re: Sleeping with metronom
 
I've also considered that but hmm. Normally, I go to sleep listening to the songs my church band are trying to learn so I know EVERY single part of it. I mean I know exactly when the tempo or style changes which I think its good because you become really familiar with the material. But with a metronome, I've heard of subliminal learning but who wants to be hearing tick tick tick tick all the time!?!

Drum-Head 03-03-2007 12:40 PM

Re: Sleeping with metronom
 
Last night I had to borrow an alarm clock to wake up on time this morning (mine is broken.) The ticking drove me crazy and I have barely slept at all. This would be the same as sleeping with a click at 60 bpm. A nightmare!

I go to sleep with a clock that's loud enough to be a metronome. It doesn't work.

HOWEVER I used to go to sleep listening to Harry Potter tapes and I could almost recite the whole series. 'Tick, tick, tick' just isn't as interesting in comparison.
