First try: 801
Second attempt: 901

If you like to stereotype, not bad for a banjo picker!

What did you use to tap with? The quality of your equipment and inet connection play a bigger part in this than your ability to keep time.

Larsie can’t even play his signature songs anymore.
Look up some of the old songs but played live in the last 5 years. HOLY crap. He barely tries anymore.

Never mind the score we all took the test because of the girl with nice tots.

I’m laying in bed with my sound completely muted. Tapped randomly and got 750.

923 first try … whats so hard about it ?
it gives you 4 beats to get in groove, just like a real drummer would do right… even if your timing is not perfekt i gues you should be able to score at least 700 at this.

Ed said:

Scored 2112

Jim

Jim said:

I always thought real drummers were prefered because their timing wasn’t always perfect but perceaved as more ‘musical’ or had more ‘feel’ than a perfect click track generated by a drum machine.

Dave said:

Hey Diana: I don’t know what you mean by calling it “sexy”. I didn’t feel aroused in the slightest doing the test, but so be it. To each their own.

Hmm, I wonder, why People always menion, that they´re not drummers… Timing and notes are for every musician and instrument the same…

Chris

Chris said:

Who wants to listen to robot music? Without Meg the White Stripes songs would not have been the White Stripes songs. I love her drumming style, it is working perfectly in the songs and that counts.

Chris

Chris said:

Or like Dave Grohl said: “It’s nice to hear drummers like Meg White – one of my favorite fucking drummers of all time. Like, nobody fucking plays the drums like that.”

Chris

Chris said:

Pretty sure I just tapped the drumline to every single White Stripes song

ICB

ICB said:

OK one for the Pedants – That’s a pic of Meg white and another pic of Niel Peart, not Bonham. Doesn’t really matter, just saying.

Keyboardist, and trying to learn a bit of guitar. Used to be in a wind ensemble and have sung in choir. Also do a bit of recording work when I can.

If I focus in a bit, my best score is 852. Makes sense about my internal clock, I guess. When I’m hitting the tempo button to set a speed I want, it usually fluctuates by 1 or 2 beats per minute. And to think I prided myself on having fairly tight timing. Ah well, will just keep making music.

Santoro

Santoro said:

Sunny, It’s been my experience that drummers always have the best timing. Of course that’s not always the case and all musicians should have good timing as well as there are always exertions to the rule.

Best 1000 worst 932 I’m a saxophone player

Metal_Pete

Metal_Pete said:

Scored 795 when I used space bar for tapping. I improved my result when I used mouse’s left click-button, my score was then 849. I can play drums, guitar, bass and keyboards. I mainly play guitar and keyboards. I’ve had a couple of years break in playing and by looking my scores that would make me a bassist! : )

pinochio said:

998.37 and I didn’t even turn the speakers on

Dave

Dave said:

This was fun. I’ve always said I was a musician at heart and a klutz at hand. Scores ranged from 761 to 898. Better with left hand even though, in theory I am right handed (they made me be a righty even though I was a south-paw). I play guitar and bass for fun

Dave

Dave said:

PS: I then tried to use my mouse, that was a disaster with scores in the high 600’s. I hate mice.

jmay said:

Hey, it’s not playing any more. I have really been enjoying doing it every day and watching my scores improve. I think it’s made a difference in my playing! Would you be willing to fix it?

Lofty Seraph said:

877, but I don’t think this is a valid test anyway. Need a song in my head to tap to. Could also keep the metronome going and see how well we keep in sync. And one more thing, if we can’t keep time then the error should compound with each missed beat, and yet I always seem to stay around center even if not exactly on it.
