Typo yes, definition no.mandocaster said:Umm, hate to be a poopyhead spelling & definition cop, but "regiment" is a grouping of military personnel smaller than a division....
I think the word is "regimen", although strictly speaking it's a medical term to do with diet.
There, I'll shut up now.
Ya know its funny, but I just bought a metrnome this weekend even though I have Cakewalk right here at my finger tips with tons of drum patterns. Why . . .?mandocaster said:The advent of MIDI was best thing in the world....a metronome that actually plays something. You can build precision at a snail's pace then speed it up 10 BPM at a time until you can blaze....

You're right, I wouldn't recommend practicing in front of the TV, but, for me, it works. Being the oldest of a large busy family growing up and now with 2 young boys I never got or get 5 minutes without distraction (but, I wouldn't want to change that) so I'm quite happy about the fact that I've developed the ability to sort of semi-tune out and concentrate on what I'm doing.traynor_garnet said:I find that and hour with the TV on is equivalent to about 5 minutes with it off. TV is just a distraction and I find real practice involves concentration.
My experience totally, except, I don't find it helps for playing live, playing live is a totally different distraction.violation said:I leave the TV on while I practice, not to watch but because there will be distractions playing live, so I'm trying to learn not to get bothered by them. Now I can play while my brother is downstairs screaming or when people are hammerin' fixin' the house, hah.
