I would remind him that the goal is to never have to count it ever again, and just be able to play it as if it was as natural as any other time sig.

Is it bad not to count. I never really learned how to count. I usually just play by ear and know the wierd changes and what not. I would like to learn how to count though. Got an suggestions on how to start learning to count?

Always be aware of the One (both of them, when playing TOO :smile: ) Know where it is, and where it is not. Know this, you must.

Oddly enough, I count with my teeth. :shock:

It works great unless you need to sing. Then adjust to tapping foot as needed. 8)

Then, after you establish the "ONE", it's followed by a "two", typically. We'll get to the next few numbers later - baby steps. :lol:

Sorry, I couldn't resist!! :roll:

No, no - I know what you meant....I'm just a cornball and can never resist cracking a terrible joke.

I avoid "counting" all together. Just focus on the riff you're playing and listen to the other members of the band. Eventually the rhythm becomes subconcious and then you become one with Bob Weir.

One with Weir... that is the answer

just ask Strummin'

:smile:

I agree, correct and WORD!

Bouk doesn't count and it shows. :lol: :x :x



Personally, I think counting is either:
1 - you know it
2 - you play it

Some people get to 2 from 1. Others need to always count.

Sadly, I think everyone needs to know how to count even if they don't have to. Bouk has a good sense of timing and I'm guessing he doesn't count, but can!!

I'll say this about not counting - you will FUCK UP the return to the Bm on "Playin'" if you don't hit on the 14th...

I think you HIT it on the 15 (count 14, then hit on the next beat, right?) :roll:
