One of the things that amazes me about Tim's playing is his ability to play with drummers (like Carlock, like Guiliana, like Nate Wood, etc.) that are constantly turning over the beat. He's able to keep his cool, keep his place, and actually interact with them in ways that not many bass players can (musicians in general for that matter).
I wonder if anyone who feels that they have a handle on this sort of thing would have any thoughts on how you go about practicing to get better at this. My sense is that he's just played night-in-night-out with so many fine drummers that he's sort of just picked it up on the job. But if there are any practice room secrets that I don't know about, I'd sure love to get hip to them.
