What is "Good Time"? Several TBers have mentioned having it usually in conjunction with discussions of metronomes. To me, "GoodTime" is a rhythmic skill that has the following characteristics: 1) The player can hold a steady tempo without a drummer, drum machine or metronome. No Russian or dragon. Really good players can do this at fast and slow tempos. The player that starts off at 120 BPM and is down to 115 in a few measures - not good time. The notes land precisely within a given tolerance. If its quarter notes, they are accurate to at least a sixteenth. This includes syncopated notes. The player can work in the more common time signatures like 4/4, 3/4, 12/8 with the correct feel. Player can do both swing and straight feel. Are these fair definitions of Good Time"? Or do I need to call Jenny at 867-5309?
