When I tell people you can make a metronome actually ‘swing’ I get some funny looks to say the least…

But, you certainly can make it swing!

A metronome can be an invaluable tool for bass players that are seeking to develop their groove and time feel. The key, is to find ways of using the metronome in a musical way that re-enforces your internal subdivision feel and in turn develops your overall groove.

In the past few lessons we’ve focused on getting your shuffle feel together and strengthening your eighth note grooves. In this lesson you’re going to learn how to make the metronome swing.

We’re going to start off slowly, so if you’re just starting out playing swing – this lesson will be great for you.

If you’re a more advanced player, don’t worry – I’ve included some exercises in this lesson that are going to make you sweat! ;)

As always, see you in the shed…

Scott :)
