This question isn't directed to ANY particular "PRo" drummer.I've been told by 3 different musicians (2 drummersx 1 guitarist) that i have a "timing" problem.The guitarist who plays with 2nd drummer has been known to have timing problems of his own due to his use of smoking MJ,
The 1st drummer mentioned this in reference to a party i attended&played at which i did get stoned,
Which occured over 20yrs ago!,
So OF COURSE my timing was off then (btw i no longer partake of ANY drug, i rarely drink also).My question is:HOW do i tell IF my timing is actually "off" (i.e. behind/ontop of or before the beat?).In my younger youth i didn't pay attention to what my drum teachers advised&wanted me to practice, i.e i NEVER EVER played along to&with a "click".Btw the 2nd drummer possibly has a hidden agenda as he left one of the guitarist's bands&knew i was after his gig in both bands,
My other question pertaining to practicing with a "click" is WHAT&HOW to practice for a complete novice,
Thank you all for both reading my long-winded question &for your assistance,advice&help.
