Default Re: Sleeping with a Click

I heard that Steve Vai trained himself to have perfect pitch by going to sleep listening to one note of a chromatic scale every night for twelve nights. Not sure if that's true, but it sounds about right. Maybe the same thing is possible with drums. Perhaps a loud clock is a better option though, I used to have one of those when I was small and couldn't sleep without it!
60bpm is as good a tempo as any. Maybe a slower one would be better, after all, good timing is about putting accurate spaces between the notes. The faster you get, the less important microtiming becomes.
