Metronome Boot Camp
get your time & feel together
How you play is way more important than what you play.
The intertubes abound with lessons on how to shred, but there was nothing good written about how to develop killer time & feel.
“Use a metronome!” they’d say.
No shit, asshat. Show me how.
So instead of well-meaning BS advice from folks who don’t actually know, I made you this.
We’ll cover the specific things you’ll need to do to get your time & feel together in order to sound like a badass professional musician.
A lucky break forced me to make the jump from "fairly decent bar band guitarist" to "professional musician" long before I was ready or qualified.
Suddenly I was surrounded by elite professional musicians, people who'd toured with huge acts and had long lists of recording credits.
It was a baptism by fire as I scrambled to quickly develop the skills & knowledge necessary to operate in this new space.
Along the way, I discovered something surprising—internet gurus and big-name music schools alike are focused on all the wrong shit.
Badass musicians the world over share a common language & a set of priorities I've never seen taught anywhere else.
It took me awhile to piece it all together & put it all in the right order.
But now that there's a clearly defined path, all that's left is for you to decide you're done with wandering blindly in the darkness, done depending on luck, ready to show up and put one foot in front of the other on the road to badassery.
I hope you'll join us.
