A post in the spam thread got me thinking about this, and I will probably ask in a few places, but I'd really like to know what you guys think. Do you have any experiences with your drummer playing to a click track in the studio, or to a loop or click live? How did it go? Can they handle it fine, or is it a problem / issue for them?
I've always kind of been surprised whenever someone has a problem playing to a click or to a loop. As long as you can hear everything okay, to me, it's not much different than playing along to other musicians - they just have really good "time." Another analogy is playing along with the radio or to a record - again, something I've done a lot of, which probably helps, but I find it strange that others struggle so much with something that seems to be so basic to me - the ability to listen and play along with others.
