Most people, i think, including me tap there foot.

How do you keep time when playing?

Anyone with unusual methods?
#2
Metronome.

Otherwise I just keep time in my head. I've been told I have "natural rhythm", or something

Gundam pilota09, i'm happy for you, and imma let you finish, but Moses had the best ten commandements of ALL TIME.

Had to do it.

My drummer has that "natural rhythm" so when playing with band I just follow him instead of taping with my foot I kinda headbang with rhythm =p but when practicing I use metronom I think metronom is best way of removing any mistakes in your playing.

Unless you're playing in an odd time signature or reading sheet music at the time of playing, I see no reason you'd need to consciously think about time. Maybe I just had really good rhythm before becoming a musician so I don't intentionally think about it. =/

Metronome. Tapping your foot can lead to slight errors. Metronome will note adjust for your playing. You're either in or you're out.

I hope nodding doesn't make me look like a bird or something.

Natural Rhythm, but I sometimes tap with my foot, especially when practising something new, on a slow tempo. On other occasions I use my drum computer..

Me to - people always look at you strange when they notice though. I also follow the drummer if there is one.
