I was reading an article about the pros and cons of metronome. Before that moment I had no idea of the concept that playing with a metronome was a bad idea. So, I’m going to have to debunk this myth and give you my 2 cents.
Playing with a metronome is great practice!
I believe that playing along with a metronome only helps. It helps your overall sense of rhythm, just like playing with a drummer.
The argument about playing without a metronome is about natural rhythm. I think this is ridiculous- when you are playing with other people you need to be able to hold a solid tempo (not to say there isn’t a natural flow of speeding up and slowing down of tempo).
I’d like to hear other’s opinions on this. I just feel that you should always be practicing with a metronome or a drum machine.
