I determine the base of a phrase (like a clump of eighth notes, sixteenths, whatever) then I picture groupings of notes in my mind, with the ones I am actually playing in bold, the ones I'm not playing crossed out or in the background. So, it's kind of a feel thing, but visualizing everything. I don't associate numbers or counting with what I picture, because that is an extra step. I just picture it, and visually, I always know where I am in a phrase, etc. Does that make sense to anybody?
I was gonna say something similar to this but i didn't think anyone would understand it in this depth. I'm more of a visual person too..
