Im having trouble playing anything besides 1/4 notes with a metronone. My trouble stems from me playing on beat, then I can't hear the metronome so I focus on hearing it, lose focus on my playing, make a mistake, stop and listen to the beat again and try to start over. Rinse and repeat. This happens at every tempo. And even with the viabrating ones. I have no problem keeping time with a recorded song and when I record myself playing solo and rewatch it, I find tempo consistent. So are metronone skills as crucial as everyone says? I find they make me focus and pull me out of the zone and I just can not do it. Any tips from anyone who had these same problems would be awesome Thanks in advance! Richard Boatwright.
