Interpersonal coordination during musical joint action (e.g., ensemble performance) requires individuals to anticipate and adapt to each other’s action timing. Individuals differ in their ability to both anticipate and adapt, however, little is known about the relationship between these skills. The present study used paced finger tapping tasks to examine the relationship between anticipatory skill and adaptive (error correction) processes. Based on a computational model, it was hypothesized that temporal anticipation and adaptation will act together to facilitate synchronization accuracy and precision. Adaptive ability was measured as the degree of temporal error correction that participants..
