Re: Having trouble playing with click
Perhaps you're not going slow enough. Obviously, you have to put in the time - anything worth doing will take time and lots of trial and error, but probably more error. I suggest getting a metronome you can hear (I still use an ancient Boss Dr. Beat) and slowing down, concentrating on exact beat placement.
If you check out Benny Greb's instructional DVD (I think he only has one), he has a whole section where he shows how he works with a metronome. It was difficult, but enlightening what you can do with it. But the concept is to get the beat internalized within you so you can play around with beats. Good luck!
