A good way to practice your sense of time and swing is to set to metronome at a slow tempo. Then play so that it clicks on the offbeats. Before you start to play set your inner counting to One – Click – Two Click.
If you can get the groove to sound as if the metronome is swingin then you have got it. The trick then is to stay in the pocket.
The slower the tempo the harder it is to keep in the groove.
We normally tend to speed up as we play. No way with Mr. Metronome.
