Having trouble playing with click
I'm pretty much a novice, and I'm trying to work on playing with click.
When I play without one I can keep a decent groove, but for some reason with a click, I tend to be late on the snare. Sometimes early on the kick and hihat, and then late on the snare. Makes the groove sound like it's dragging. I feel like I'm keeping time and grooving, but when I listen back, it's no good!!
If I play really rigidly I can keep the groove.
I know the answer is probably "keep practicing", but I thought maybe someone might have a clue as to why I'm doing this.
Also, what is better to practice with, a simple metronome click, or a fuller percussion type loop or something along those lines?
