I play a mixture of lead and rhythm in my band. I'd say that my #1 weakness is my sense of timing. I know it when I hear it... but particularly when I'm nervous, my timing sounds a little stilted... not real easy or natural. (My dancing is like that too, but we won't go there.) So... what tips do you have for improving our sense of timing? I'm not talking about speed, just talking about that natural sense of time... the stuff you don't notice until it's a little forced. At the moment, I'm trying to just close my eyes and loosen up a little... just move with the groove and feel the rhythm. It helps, but I'm wondering what the experienced players out there think about this.
