Default Re: Having trouble playing with click

I've been drumming for less than a year, so take this whence it comes.

Initially I found an old fashioned clockwork metronome to be really useful, because if I lost my place, it wasn't doing any fancy bar counting, just clicking at a steady rate, so I could leap back in as soon as gathered myself up again.

I tried apps on my (Android) phone. One of them was definitely speeding up and slowing down. That was a PITA because as a newbie drummer I assumed it was me losing the beat. It definitely wasn't.

Now I'm using a Boss DB60, and setting up clues for bars, which I now appreciate a bit more.

Don't overthink it...when you get it right, the click (whatever its source) magically disappears.
