So I've never been one to keep time on my hihat. I see drummers on YouTube or in concerts where their left foot is a constant metronome throughout whatever song they are playing. For some reason I just cannot do that. My left foot is just stupid. The only lessons I took on a regular basis was for marching band all 4 years of high school. I took a few drum set lessons in college when I was trying to learn jazz. I couldn't get that down either. The jazz lessons did help improve my rock drumming over all but I've never been able to get that left foot independence for time keeping. Does anybody else have this problem? Listening back to some of the records and demos I've made in the past the time stays consistent so maybe its not a big issue. I dunno. It just came across my mind while watching a clutch concert on YouTube and jp has that foot locked down to the tempo.
