  • metronomes

    sorry if the spelling is wrong, but how do they work, i know it's for keeping time how do you do that,

    e.g is like when it is a the very left you hit the snare and when it is at the very right you hit somthing else?


    thanks in advance dave

    Metronomes are extremely important in developing your "inner clock." They are there to help you make sure that the tempo you are playing different exercises/beats are at a constant speed. The metronome could be set at any of the different note values, or just at a specific tempo. Don't worry about where the click is (left or right side), but worry about whether you are staying at the same speed. For example, when the click hits, you are hitting the hats, or the bass, etc. Keep it constant, and you'll be alright. The more you use a metronome, or click track, the more comfortable you will be using one, and then your time should become better.

          I use "MetroPhones" and the Tama Rythem Watch. Both are good, inexpensive options for Metronomes. The MetroPhones in particular are nice since you get hearing protection in addition to a metronome.

              The isolation headphones with the metronome are the MeteroPhones. They are really good. I cant think of a decent metronome for less then a hundred. The Tama Rythm Watch is around $100.00 also
