I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this issue …
so the burning question is:
how does one get a reliable sense of timing?
I am pretty aware of what are the inflicting parameters are (beat, pulse, polymeric groove and swing; playing before and after the beat etc …).
But still I find it difficult to internalize the tempo, so that it is there and stays forever, even if the metro is off (or everybody else stops playing).
I tend to speed up, in slow tempos and speed down in fast tempos.
I programmed a metronome (with a couple of flaws, but basically useable) that can be turned on and off for measures that can be downloaded here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/p4p2v7oj3dttstu/MyMetro.zip
os x only, sorry.
And it should be a good tool for training. (you learn by repetition, right?). But I find it a kind of frustrating to miss the 1 after the metronome paused for 16 beats …
So I still do wonder if there are any shortcuts or tips/tricks that help you to engage in the feeling of a correct timing ...
