Re: Is it fair to play live with a metronome?
Of course its fair, unless you are truly good enough to play without one. I use one when I'm playing stuff that I can't quite lock into on my own, and I don't feel like a cheat. Who said you have to use it all the time. If it makes your job easier, I say go for it. Just make sure your band can stay in time aswell, otherwise it can get very messy.
