To get the software visit http://bouncemetronome.com This version goes silent every so many measures. The subdivisions are played at a slightly faster tempo than the main beat so gradually drift in and out of phase.

Can you continue to play exactly in time with them with the distraction of the out of sync. main beat? Try to hit each beat in the pocket, so exactly that your notes merge with the metronome click. Then - can you do the same with the main beat? Then for a final challenge, can you play both at once - e.g. with drum sticks play exactly in time with the drifting subdivisions with your right hand, and exactly in time with the main beat with your left hand?

If you can do that, are you still in time after the silences - and exactly on the pocket for both rhythms?

My idea for this video is that It's an exercise that might help develop your sense of inner tempo, also help develop rhythmic independence and flexibility, and also as a polyrhythms exercise too.

This is a really tough exercise. If you haven't tried them yet try the easier ones on this page first:

This is another one of these exercises for steadiness and independence, encouraging you to use & strengthen your own inner sense of a steady rhythm and tempo and not to rely on the metronome for it.
