I love watching a great band live, left hand with my bottle of beer by my waist, thumb hooked into my pants pocket. Legs shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent. Right hand is free to tap out the beat. And to find the beat, its not normally too difficult when watching a rock band. Unless they get you on the intro.
1. The act of starting a song by non-percussive instruments, establishing a beat, then bringing in the drums on the ‘off-beat’.
I’ll can only locate this one example, but I know there are more.
Check it out. Play the song and start tapping the beat.
Did it get you???
