If I tap my big toe, then I will have a foot tapping and a head bobbing! This was an anomaly noted by one of my professors when I was working on my masters in both choral conducting and music theory.
All told, I downloaded the scores into my iPad in an app call ForScore, and I practice with the metronome on all the time! It's a great tool, and it's always there for quick reference!
Hi Dustin. Good to hear from you. I guess a snagged nail will do it to you every time!
Being a choir director is cool. I love how the art uses the hands to command the beat, tempo, dynamics, and the expression of the music. Even the face (the mouth gestures) plays a role in leading the singers, I believe.
If you are happy with the bob, then the more power to you. I suspect the head bobbing is not a common practice with your playing, since you don't do it in your other videos. You are pretty still with slight emotional expression from time to time. I think it complements your fine playing. We're all here to help and support each other and become better guitarist. Looking forward to more of your music videos and your feedback to my playing as well. Again, thanks for that suggestion of internalizing the beat. Regards, Nelson.
