Ever been tricked by syncopated accents?

First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I have a lot of great things in the works for 2020 and I am so so grateful for everyone’s support in my musical journey. I’ve recently seen this clip of Thom Yorke getting a bit tripped up during a Radiohead concert and it got me

thinking. Have you ever been tricked into hearing the beat where it isn’t? If you accent beat 4 as if its best one do you accidentally feel it as beat 1? It’s a weird phenomenon that can effect everyone even the pros but I think if you spend some time challenging yourself to be able to feel a beat AGAINST syncopated accents. Your sense of timing will improve tremendously.
