    I should add that a foot switch in combination with the metronome is another great thing to use.

    Thanks again!.....we'll hopefully they'll converge on vaguely satisfactory as I get practice . I managed to pick up a Gralab timer for $22 off the bay...very lucky on this one...a lot of time they gave some competition for these things. It did shock me how expensive they can be (same thing with safelights.) I can see where a metronome would work real well, especially for someone who is already musically inclined.

    A metronome is very convenient for dodging and burning, particularly if you take time to become accustomed to that method.

    A timer which also has an audible metronome function is the best of both worlds.
