Hi Louie, Thanx for all the contact and lessons. They are a great deal to me especially whens’m hopping form one gig to another. In between those gig’s there is always a hole and i can grab back at your lessons to get inspired.
Question: we are working with a lot of backing tracks and click tracks, how do you work with them and even more, how do you study them to still keep on making music?
Thanks – great that you’re enjoying the site! In answer to your question – as long as you have good monitoring and can hear the backing track well, it shouldn’t affect what’s going on in the music. Yes, it does mean you’re more ‘tied down’ and have a responsibility to make the timing with the backing track your priority, but it should be relatively easy. You just have to practice with clicks and tracks as much as possible in the practice room so that it becomes second nature. It’s the same when you’re in the studio – often the drummer is the only person with the click. It’s funny because often the other musicians don’t want the click, at all, because they feel restricted by it, but really, having a click playing is just like having another person in the band, someone who has great time and is playing cowbell!
Hope that answers your question?
