Keeping Time

“A cat asked Coltrane, ‘When you’re out there doing that wild solo, what are you hearing?’ And he said, ‘The bass.'” –Mike Watt

The four count rhythm between ten and two never worked for me.

Putting a bass line to it kind of does. Jamerson to start and maybe when things get going something else. Or this. Or Shakespeare.

Contrived? Maybe. But it beats thinking about a metronome.
