Re: Is it fair to play live with a metronome?
Oh man it's not a bad thing, it's a heckuva skill.
Also, if playing along to a click, the other musicians have to be good at it too, a tall order. How many stringed instrument players do you know who practice to one? I can't name any.
It's relatively easy for me to play to one, but the minute the others come in with their "non metronomed" sense of timing, that's when it gets derailed for me.
