    if you have a cd version of the song, listen to it and work out the beat, then match the speed of the metronome the beat of the song. easy

    Oh, that is a good idea. I think I might do that then. What I usually do is try and play with the music playing in the background. Is that bad do you think? Also, and I feel so stupid asking this, do you work out the beat/timing from the drums don't you?

    Theres no such thing as stupid questions, just stupid people. it's easiest to pick up the beat from the drums yes. just tap your foot to the song and you should be able to find the beat.

    I think its good to practice with the song playing in the background, that makes sure you play in the right time

    i have this super cute metronome/tuner thats so cool and tiny
    it was only 60 bucks and bext ever cos it fits in my clarinet case perfectly
    electronic ones are cool cos u can also change sime signatures, beats, note groupings, etc, and its more accurate cos i can put in the exact timing.
    and its cuter

    arg, electronic metronomes are annoying, unless it's mutable, and you can only see the red and green lights in time without the beeps

    I played the flute for 6 years, and the bassoon for 2. God, I love the bassoon, sounds so amusing.

    He he he. Yeah, I guess it does. I should pick up a smaller instrument; bassoons heavy and expensive. I went to see a music performance once and this guy had a bright red one that cost around $65,000. Although, on average you can get a decent one for 'normal people' for around $3000 - $8000 (the higher cost ones are concert bassoons). Reeds are expensive too at $16 a go. Especially if you keep chewing on them like I do.

    Done babbling.

    LONG LIVE DOUBLE REED PLAYERS!!! hehehe

    anyways, yeah the reeds are expensive, mine for my little oboe costed $16. An old friend of mine started playing Bassoon and the reeds he got were $50 or something, and he broke one at band camp and they had to run out and get him another one it was funny though.

    P.S. no band camp jokes please, i get them enough being a flute player too! hey get this, i was walking into a maccas one day after school and i had my flute and i sat down and some fat blonde (no offence) bitches started saying/gesturing the band camp line. was not happy!
