Re: Is it fair to play live with a metronome?
I play in strictly cover band and I could not imagine having to play live with a click. Just playing along to cd's of the songs we cover (70's 80's classic rock) I can tell they are not all perfect time and thats something that adds to the greatness of the songs IMO.
I practice to one all the time but I notice when I do get off time with the click I do whatever it takes to get back in line with it and it sometimes sounds like crap for a a note or 2 and I can't imagine doing something like that live. Thats just something even the most drunk listener will hear.
I did see a guy playing to something he had on his snare drum, I forget the name of it but he said it told him what speed he was playing the snare at, anyone know what this is?
