Sooooo... we have a recently formed unit that's starting out as a Queensryche tribute then using that set as the basis to proceed with original music. Our drummer had never listened to QR until I turned him onto them, but he's 50ish with a very nice kit, and has gone through the years playing Zappa, Rush, Police, Yes etc. There's no doubt he can play the stuff.
The thing is, I'm having real trouble slowing he and Tommy (axe) down at times (I sing the stuff and it's hard enough as it is). We nabbed the Rockenfield book and CD and gave that to the guy, and while exploring it he discovered that pretty much everything QR does is to a click track, especially live. Sounds like a well-imposed discipline to me, so now comes the project of creating one.
Which I've never done.
So where do I even start? I'm using FL Studio and have DrumSynth so theoretically I should be able to construct something. Also seems to me like I'd need to ad a few beeps and buzzes here and there to let us know where we are in the song (verse, measure, etc.).
If anyone here has already done this I'm sure listening to your advice.
