Trouble with Rhythm


Recommended Posts

I have been playinf for a while now. I know I have improved a lot. People tell me i have tons of potential. I just need to work on two things: Theory and my timing.


The theory I have no problem with. It all makes sense to me. But my timing is rubbish. I've tried playing with a metronome but it pisses me off. I know that may be my only option...any tips you guys got?

What helped me when I was learning timing was to play along with a recording of some kind. Since I knew what time the song in the recording was in, I could work until I was able to match it. At the same time, I never felt bored because I was playing along to music I liked. After I did this for a while, my timing "sense" improved enough that I was able to play in time on my own.
