The metronome - a must for all of those who are tempo challenged

I suck at keeping a beat.


I mean, I know my notes and rests. Lord knows I know how to count (I'd hope so being in accounting).

But I can't keep the beat going.

So, like all aspiring bass players, I bought one of these ...
Isn't it nifty? I see the jaws droppin' from here. Truth be it known, I really wanted one of these ...

Wittner GmbH & Co Series 803 Metronome
But at a price tag of USD$80? Ummm, I'll take cheap over asthetic for now.

And if anyone needs to know how to keep a beat, aside from the obvious drummer, it's the bass player!

Good purchase!!

*jaw drops*
They're how much!?!
I had that exact one too!
I threw it in the trash when I moved.

Jade ~ Thanks. It's really nifty. It does the beat count up to 7 per measure. And it does triplets, eigths, etc. I love it.

Rowan ~ Dumbass. Go to the landfill and get it.
