More Metronome Fun!

Very quick one today. Just another way to work on the metronome time stuff.
Lately I've been just playing the ride rhythm on the snare with brushes or on the cymbal with a stick. I've been setting the evil device to 58 or so ( this makes it a sort of medium up tempo) and using 1 click per bar, making the click beat 1 of every bar, the + of 1 of every bar, beat 2 of every bar, and so on until you've played the click on every possible part of the bar. You can also try playing halftime and keep where the click is straight in the original tempo, or try blowing over it, experiment. I've been finding it quiet tough but I think it's doing a lot for my accuracy, hopefully it will for you too!
