In a recent lesson, a student's Bolero didn't have good time. I took a deep breath and stood next to him saying, "doo-doo-doo-doo-doo..." in 16th notes.
Hey, it worked. Even on the next run-through when all he had was the memory of my "doo-doo's"
Reminds me of Tony Chipurn, who always told me to play Bolero with "lazy 16th notes."
He was right on the money as always.
