Yep, I definitely need to learn how to do this stuff better if I want to improve for home recording or even play in a band. Like I said, I plan on buying a drummer’s book ’cause that will help. There are also all kinds of great instructional videos in youtube with musicians teaching you how to count different rhythm’s. This is one thing I really need to concentrate on, the most.
If I can understand timing and rhythm better, I’ll become a much better songwriter and guitar player. Wish I learned this stuff a long time ago. I didn’t think you need to learn it just being an acoustic solo act, but when you want to play in a band or record in the studio, gotta be good with the metronome. Plus, more people will give you more respect with your songs if you’re playing in time.
