I play along to music and a metronome which helps, but jamming with friends is another story. When my guitar playing buddy messes up (which happens quite often lol hes learning) it often messes me up too. Is there a mental way around this? Or should i just get more musically inclined friends? heh. Thanks for taking the time to answer 9 pages worth of questions on this thread lol you're a better man than I.
Thanks for the props man......
About the best thing I can recommend for time keeping is doing something like this.....In all types of varying slow tempos.

And, just playing to a click a lot.... will build your internal clock.

I guess that's the best you can do.....and if the guitarist is having problems....make him play to a click too! Haha.

Cheers,
