Same here. It's a great tool !]we practice with a click so that we can perform passages that are hard in time.
I didn't say it was wrong. I said it is funnyI am not his buddy however he is referred to by his first name in the same way Tony and Buddy are...what's wrong with that?
You are reading words that aren't there. All I read was I just need a general idea of the BPM for maybe 10 songs and I just want something (for now) to be able to punch in the BPM and hear the click for a few seconds, get the idea and then GO.The OP asked if he should use a click for those songs where the tempo needs to be exact.
I'm not in the "follow the drummer" school. I'm in the "band plays together" school.If a band can't follow your time then you are always on a losing battle.
There will be times when a player is playing a difficult segment while trying to sing something rhythmically unrelated and the tempo will suffer slightly. Other band members will instinctively make unrecognizable adjustments and it will appear perfect.
I feel that I'm the flexible adhesive that helps hold things together.
I have several instances where, for whatever reason, the person fronting the song seems to want to play at a certain tempo. At first I will try to guide the song to what it is supposed to be but, after experiencing the same thing time after time, I will just let it go where it wants to go and it will be fine.
