Hi all,

I'm having problems with timing,but only within a song.I understand the metronome lesson,
but i can't seem to apply that knowledge while playing a song.Most songs i attempt to play
are in common time and not that fast.I think i'm counting wrong or something like that.At
this point i feel like an idiot.PLEASE HELP

I can't really say that there is a direct connection between understanding the metronome lesson and undertsanding the timing in a song. (in the long run there is a connection for sure)

My advice is to get the song timing right is to loop it over and over again - and try to play with the recording.

If you haven't really nailed a part of a song before - then you might have to put quite some work into this. And it will be well worth it - as you most likely will have a treshold experience after getting the timing right for the first time.

So just try it over and over - and if it is a difficult part you are working with, I would suggest you either pick an easier one, or try to simplify what you are playing just to get the timing right.

Hope it helps... smile.gif
