I have been making reasonable progress playing tenor sax but I do not mentally count beat. I prefer to concentrate on other aspests of playing. I do not think this is causing me too many problems as I still have a reasonable sense of rhythm but my teacher thinks I should be counting all the time. I have read the article on this site regarding this method of playing (ie not specifically counting) which really encouraged me to carry on as I have been doing. What do more experienced musicians do? Do you count or just feel where you are in the bar?
