Benny Greb, well known for his contributions to the drumming education community, shared the approach that he has taken personally to develop his sense of groove and improve his own timing on his instrument in his course “The Art and Science of Groove”. Now with the Gap Click app, everyone can practice his method easily with a simple-to-use app!
Unlike standard metronomes which simply state the time, Gap Click helps you improve your sense of time. Gap Click focuses on improving your ability to keep tempo, become more aware and comfortable with off beat clicks and by that, become bullet proof and accurate with all notes of the subdivision.
By scrolling through the numbers of bars and patterns you can quickly configure a “gap” of time in which the metronome drops out. When the “one” comes back around, will your playing still be in time? How long of a gap can you play through and still maintain solid tempo?
Next you can experiment with all kinds of off-beat patterns in the Gap Bar which moves the click from the downbeat position to a different location. Can you still play your instrument and maintain the downbeat internally even when you hear the click sound on an off-beat?
Both the “click” and the “gap” portion supports a variety of different syncopated patterns allowing you the ability to practice in binary or ternary rhythms - with more or less safety net depending on your settings.
• Ability to choose from a variety of different syncopated patterns and # of measures for both the standard "click" as well as the "gap"
• Use the nostalgic click wheel to find the right tempo or tap to set your desired tempo
• Standard quarter-note time signatures: 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 7/4
• See visual feedback for each note or rest that is played
• Accent beat 1 of each measure or turn accents off
• Flash the screen when switching from the "click" to the "gap"
• Find your favorite sound from a variety of click samples hand-picked by Benny
