Reply To: Basic Question about PSTEC click tracks

    Well, first of all it depends which Click Track you are using because you will notice that each Click Track has a little different instructions in terms of which hand responds to which click or tone.

    For each click and tone, you are TAPPING your fingers.

    It does not matter where you tap your fingers just that the fingers are tapping and moving.  Most people are sitting and, if comfortable, rest their hands on their thighs and just tap the thighs, but, again, where you tap does not matter.

    If you feel that tapping a certain point will help, please do.
    There are two click beat tracks and a tone track in every audio, but the tapping varies depending upon the particular audio file.

    Let’s take the Click Track 01 (file name “PSTecFile01”) as an example…
    1.There is the first, faster click beat track and Tim says tap with the fingers of the right hand along with the rhythm of the clicking.
    2.There is a second, slower click beat track and Tim says tap along with the fingers of the left hand along with the rhythm of the clicking.
    3.There is a tone and when you hear that, you tap with BOTH hands as rapidly as you can.
    Again, when it comes to tapping with your individual hands and the speed of the tapping, they correspond the same.  In other words, when you tap with either hand singly, you tap in rhythm or in time with the clicks and tones.  When you are tapping with both hands, tap them rapidly together; as fast as you can.

    Remember, just do the best you can in terms of the tapping… if you miss, don't worry, just do the best you can.

    Be sure you are focusing as he says in the audio on TRYING HARD  to feel the feelings (it’s not important to feel the feelings, but only TRY HARD to feel the feelings) and the problem memory or imagined event.  Don't worry about understanding what he is saying; just focus on trying hard to feel the feeling, on the memory/imagined event and doing the best you can to keep up the tapping with your fingers.

    Listen to the PSTEC Instructions audio again to become more familiar with the process and also review the FAQ's as they may give you more insight on how to use PSTEC appropriately and may also give you more confidence in using them…
