Default Re: Having trouble playing with click

That's great that you're recording yourself, and it's also great that you're hearing where you're having problems - that's the first step :-)

You didn't mention what kind of grooves you were playing, or the tempo, so fill us in if you can... Playing to a more layered loop is a great way to practice. If you have access to loops with a steady tempo, then record yourself again and see if your playing changes.

With the sparse click, playing spaces is difficult, but learning to hear, feel and internalize that space is part of playing. Also play along with some songs that you know have steady time (drum machine or programmed drum parts that songs have). Keep on recording yourself, it's a great way for you to hear how you're doing, but will also train your ears and help you to be a critical listener...
