Slowing down of rhythms.
In my current project, my drummer and I basically play glorified samples, not really overly technical or complicated riffs, but repetitive phrases with a small leeway somewhere else then back to the main phrase. That being said, working in a glorified sample mindset sometimes we get a bit too excited and speed up rhythms to where an MC or singer would have a hard time keeping up. Any suggestions or experiences on slowing down songs?
Do you have a metronome or use a click track? Slow it down and play along.
Does the singer have trouble with fitting in all the lyrics when the tempo is too fast? If so, you must either slow the tempo in order understand the lyric or have the singer practice better enunciation and diction.
We will vary the tempos of songs all the time for several reasons, to fit the lyrics, for the "feel", to make them more dance-able, etc, until we find just the right meter that works. Sometimes just a few clicks in bpm (beats per minute), up or down, can make a big difference.
Thank you for your indulgence,
