Episode 144 - Metro Gnomes
I wish I had a dollar for everytime I said "go practice that with a metronome" to a student. I am becoming hopelessly cynical because I have given up hope that any people actually do it. And man, it sure makes for some lousy pickin' at the jam session.
You know, you could get better but it requires a bit of work. And the best tool I can think of to help improve your listening and rhythm skills is the insidious clicking of a metronome. If you didn't listen to one churn away for at least 2 hours this past week, (turn off Netflix and you'd have plenty of time) you are just not going to be all that you can be.
This episode also features a brief encounter with The Gnome his-own-self. Sorry, Mr. Gnome, I apologize for calling you a dastardly jerk. Please forgive me and return my car keys. And my 9/16" deep well socket.
Thank you to my Patreon supporters. YOU are a huge part of making this happen. I do appreciate it! I really, really, really, really do.
