Not silly at all. Although I have no experience of this for 1MCs, a good guitarist who helped in my early days, said practising in the dark was essential for gigging. By now he's been playing for 50 years and a great blues guitarist, inspired by Elmo James. He said on stage it was normal not to see what you were playing, so playing in the dark ensured you landed in the right place each time. Should have a go again myself as its been years since I tried it last and that was a right wottsit.

M1 Metronome is a free Android app... It is very customisable. I'm doing 1 minute changes with a timer and enjoying them. I have a ledger book I write them in and do 2 - 3 attempts of each change so I'm constantly testing myself... Not boring at all, it's a challenge!!

I enjoy doing this. +5bpm seems like nothing on paper, but in practicality, it is a difference.

I've got a metronome that adds 5bpm every 4 bars or something. I've never used it; have any of you? If so, did it help you?
