The notes of any solo are only half the story; the other, equally crucial element is the rhythm. Though there are leagues of books teaching you the scales, modes, and arpeggios that are used when soloing, there's been a great void in the available material with regards to teaching the concept of rhythm. We don't instinctually possess knowledge of which notes to use, so why would we instinctually know which rhythms to use when playing these notes? This is where Rhythmic Lead Guitar comes into play. In this book, you'll learn the timing of notes from the ground up, helping you to develop a solid, internal sense of rhythm that will stick with you throughout your career. You'll be armed with an intimate knowledge of a beat's anatomy, and you'll possess the tools necessary to manipulate the timing of any phrase as you see fit. With a strong command of rhythm, your solos will sound more authoritative, unique and memorable.
