I dont exactly enjoy doing things scales / triplets / fingering excercises to a metronome but its a necessary evil to get better and faster ( eventually ) and smoother. Mostly i hate the ticking ... Thanks to some higher powers i dont have dreams involving metronomes! Every once in a while you do something good with your timing but then crap its time to turn it faster! These days most people probably use metronomes on iphones/etc but back in the days i bet some serious abuse has been doled out to some innocent time pieces ha ha! Any good stories? Thats all i have back to practicing!
