I've started playing drums, while I have extensive music background in piano, and know how to play beats, the problem I'm finding is I am consistently playing slightly late to the beat.
I worked this out using Yamaha DTX 450K electric drum kit Training Mode Rhythm Gate feature, which mutes any hits that are not in time with metronome, and lets you know if it is early or late to the beat, about 30% of my hits are out of time.
The worst part is even very simple beats like hitting hi hat or snare only in 1/4 notes at 80 BPM I am still struggling to consistently stay on the beat. In my mind I feel like I'm hitting in time with the click track, but the audio is different story.
My current approach is to just continue practicing like this until I get it right, and making adjustments. And it is gradually improving, but I wonder if there is something else to think about to help hitting drums in time.
