Is it just me, or does the metronome seem to slow down when you are playing along with it, and speed back up when you stop. I was playing sextuplets at 126 BMP's yesterday, and it seemed that I was perfectly in time, but every time I would stop playing, the metronome seemed to speed up slightly, as if I was out of time while playing. But I was even counting the beats out loud to check that I was in time. Did anyone else notice this? Is this the time time-warping John Petrucci is talking about?

Dude, your probably just playing out of time. Your playing to fast maybe?... or it could actually be some evil spirit having a laugh with you...

Make sure you are playing in time. But if you are, which you may be, just know that time is relative. I seem to be asleep for 1 second when I am actually asleep for hours. *shrug*

Nope. Shawn Lane speed is necessary in order to time warp. Petrucci is just ignorant.

OK well there's no rational explaination for that. 120 bpm is not that slow by the way. Unless your playing whole notes. Turn it down to 80 bpm and plays eighth notes or two notes per click and see if its still doing it. If it is, emmm... exorcist may be needed or it could be just faulty. I hope that helps in any way cause' you got a really weird problem there mate.

Some metronomes do suck and go out of time, but an electronic click track should do the trick.

But you're likely just rushing the tempo. This is natural, but should be eliminated by metronome practice.

True, I guess. I have good timing, but I don't practice with a metronome often, so maybe I'm just not used to the effects.

I sometimes feel the same way.

Time flies when you're having fun, it might be a related phenomenon due to your concentration or something.
