Often, we drummers got "scolded" by not keeping the time.
Yes, no doubt we held more responsible on keeping the time, but when timing is out, are we really the one to blame?
Once incident, I play with my metronome and I'm in time with metronome (of course!), but one of my band member said I'm not following the tempo and making him playing in the wrong timing. I chose to defend myself, telling him I'm using metronome and I'm following the metronome, and I suggest to band members if possible all of us should have a professional metronome which everyone can hear the click and following it, straight away, the person fired me, "isn't it your job to keep timing? We other instruments got solos to do. Just keep your timing. Aren't we busy enough?"
Wow... Lol... no worry, We're still stick like a glue in the band and I swallowed my upset and bear the responsible of keeping the timing... hehe...
What about you guys? Any suggestion or encouragement for me?
Blessings to all of you~!
