“Time and feel are intuitive rather than mechanical. Reliance on mechanical means such as counting and the use of metronomes are poor substitutes for feeling it.” – Steve Sedergreen view

Time and feel are intuitive rather than mechanical. Reliance on mechanical means such as counting and the use of metronomes are poor substitutes for feeling it. Time emanates from within the body and move outwardly, a natural feeling that should not be restricted”.  (chapter 21, para 4)
– Steve Sedergreen, Jazz educator in his book, “Start Playing Jazz Piano Now

So how do we get this feeling? Metronomes don’t have it.  Beatboxes and drum machines don’t have it.   Playing with a drummer does.  As does a recording of great artists or top session drummers playing arrangements for your song.  That’s what you get with Song Rhythm Tracks.  You really feel as though the drummer is getting excited about the song you are playing.
