So I’m learning Time Bomb by Rancid and the thing is crazy fast. I have a really hard time syncing to the drum. Some times I play a bit too fast and sometimes I’m playing a bit too slow.
Everytime, I see myself as the drummer of the movie Whiplash. Getting screamed at : ARE YOU RUSHING OR ARE YOU DRAGGING??? and getting slapped in the face. At least I know wich one I am doing. One of my favorite movies of all time so it is good to recall it from times to times =)
So what song makes you rush or drag?
This is something I struggled with for a while but seemed to correct itself with time and practice in general. I think it’s self correcting which experience.
Easier to do if you slow the song down. I am trying to learn Breaking the Law, and there is a lot of chugging at speed. Just my inexperience. Will work itself out
Of course once I have it done and my cover recorded I can deny there was ever a problem. No proof, didn’t happen
Slow to 75 perecent then speed up
Yep, playing at speed should be the last step. Job One should be ensuring that technique is accurate and clean at slow to medium speeds.
Ah, one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite music movies.
Actually, this very topic was discussed here along with @JoshFossgreen 's “Ultimate Groove Workout”
