It also gives you the freedom of varying the time if it needs to vary- you get a better feeling for swing-feel because your brain knows what tight timing means... and how a more free timing should flow.
Just train it every day for a few 10-20 minuets and you fast see results that your tracking is getting better an better. Start at lower BPMs such as 75 go up two BPM after 2 days and see where you can get after 2 moths go back a few BPMs or start to play eights.....
Buy the book - guitar discipline....it like timing drills..
I agree with this ; before doing the amount of playing to a click as I have been in Logic ( and now in Cubase ) daily for the past 7 years, I was notorious for "rushing" when playing live. Now, my time is amazingly "on", and find myself quantizing less and less ( I'm a keyboardist ). It's fun to see just how on the beat I can now play, thanks to the daily "click" practice in Logic/Cubase.
Give it a try for a long while, and I'll bet your time improves magically.
