Often times when I'm doing simple strokes (as from Stick Control) to the tick of a metronome, I get into streaks of not hearing the metronome, just my strokes. I suppose that's a good thing, right? Meaning it's well coordinated enough as to suppress the metronome's tick.
But since it's just my guess, I wanted to know if it's something to aim for. Maybe consistently hearing the tick just after the stroke could be more desirable, I don't know. And I often wonder if I don't subconsciously do louder strokes as to suppress the tick, masking my actual timing precision.
