Using a metronome to practice jazz

In jazz swing styles, we snap our fingers with the high hat, on beats two and four. It's important for jazz players to practice with this “high hat” beat to get comfortable with playing with an active rhythm section. If your tempo is 120, set it to 60. At first it seems like the metronome is beating out half notes on one and three. Snap your fingers with that beat and say the beat count out loud, “one, two, three, four” with the snaps on two and four.

It might feel weird at first, but soon you'll feel that the metronome is on beats two and four. Continue the count in your head and play your instrument.

For Latin styles and “up” tempos, jazz players often rely on tapping their feet on one and three, or just on one. Keep in mind that relying on a “high hat” beat for tempos exceeding quarter note equals 220 can be more frustrating than productive. Therefore, for “up” tempos, set the metronome to regular half notes or whole notes.
