: For years I kept the groove by tapping my foot. One of my college jazz instructors insisted I quit tapping my foot and count out loud. A definite improvement because now I can subdivide the beat into eights or sixteenths and play a lot of very tight figures.
: It was hard as hell initially, but after two months it is comfortable.
: Wadda ya think? Anybody else done this?
funny - just the opposite worked for me....
By tapping my left foot I am actually able to feel the groove and subdivide etc alot easier!
