I’m finding that speeding up tunes is more common than not. I am one of the culprits, surely, though I try to keep tempos even. Finally broke out the metronome and started using it regularly. Then I thought, slow sessions usually aren’t slow and folks can’t keep steady beats at that level or most other levels, so why not have a metronome session since it seems that’s what I and many many other folks need to work on and would benefit from the most playing music derived from dance tunes.
Just wanted to get that off my chest. Any suggestions on how to keep tempos steady and how to keep other folks from speeding up your set?
