Thank you all for the suggestions and tips! One last question. When i fall off the click (usually in a fill). How do i get back on track without creating a train wreck?
A little practice to help 'regulate' your fills is a good idea. But if you're hearing the click like you should - as the loudest thing in your mix - you won't lose it. The main reason drummers can't follow a click is because they can't hear it*. Their mix has too much stuff competing with the click, and perhaps even their drums are too loud in the mix.
When you're using a click, the click is everything. Period. There's no room for a 'nice' mix - turn the click up, and everything else down.
* The second most common reason? Stubbornness!
