Little Neophyte Music: Miss Metronome Discovers Timing (23) RE: Music: Miss Metronome Discovers Timing 05 Nov 01

Something else has come up.  I was recently taught an old-time tune that I am not familiar with.  The person who taught me the tune put a lot of syncopation into it.  I figure that is because the tune is so common that by syncopating it, it keeps him interested in the tune.  But for me it makes it more difficult.  I think it is best for me to first learn the basic tune with out syncopation and then throw in the syncopation when I feel comfortable with the tune.  When I try to play this tune the way I was taught all syncopated like, I having all kinds of trouble playing it with the metronome. Can't seem to find the groove.

Mark, it will be kind of nice to go from an electrical metronome to a mechanical one. Being I don't know any better when I do get the real McCoy I will appreciate it so much more.
