This song's focus is mainly about Timing thus the name "Time Control" (and prolly because I like Doctor who) lol... this past week i've been practicing with a metronome (something that I've rarely done) one of my least used tools just may be my best guide as a musician period. anyway

wanted to share ...

Hey mate! The improvement can be heard of course, but, tell me could you post a version of the same recording having a metronome track with it or a drum track?

What do you say?

Hi Vulpine! It's great to see you working hard on your weak point. I have to say that you timing is very close to perfection on this song. You did a great job! Could you please share with us which things you worked and how could you improve your timing as fast?
Congrats man!

yea its 50bpm kind of like 8th notes but I wanna say in each measure u play the first two beats like eight notes but the next two beats you dont play and then u start again on the 1 beat ... not sure exactly what this tempo is called but its similiar to hearing a heart beat = )

Congrats man!

well two artist's id have to credit is Buckethead and Marco Sfogli

listening to how buckethead approaches his soloing and one thing i noticed that might be greatly overlooked with his soloing is his Timing when he's soloing or improvising he's not just hoisting out licks and runs all over the place he's very rhythmic and is mostly always on the beat of the song ..... like 1..2..1..2..1..2..1.2 like that ... to try to adapt to that way of playing I turned on a metronome and just practiced soloing only playing within the tempo/ or beat and I noticed it takes disicipline to play like that but i also noticed how proffessional it sounds when ur playing within the tempo and beat


Listening to Marco Sfogli the way marco approaches a phrase I think is thats to play a theme then play that theme again but either add/remove or end the theme differently on the second time and then maybe play that theme an octave higher and stuff like that so

Hehe! As Gabe says, there's an obvious improvement in your timing and as you have noticed it yourself - it sounds way more professional!

My suggestion here would be to make a solid habit out of this and work on all your recordings by following this routine:

- use a metronome when practicing the parts
- play the whole song against the metronome
- after mastering it like that, play it against the backing track
- record after everything sounds as close to perfection as possible

In time, you will develop a very keen sense of timing and your recordings will be top notch!

Do we have a deal, mate?

Cosmin

Excellent! So you started to concentrate and analyze rhythm. The results are very notorious. Keep on this path!
