Hi Folks

I am looking for a book on rhythm. A comprehensive book that sort of eases you into rhythm playing
and then builds up. Suggestions from personal experience would be golden.

It doesn't necessarily have to be for guitar.

Cheers
Vic

Well, Troy Stetina's Metal Rhythm Guitar Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 are good. I have Volume 1 right now. It comes with full backing tracks, and its pretty fun to play along with.

For the benefit of others:

After a bit of research, I bought a book called "Modern Reading Text in 4/4" by Louis Bellson.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0769233775/102-3671907-6344154?v=glance&n=283155

The entire book contains rhythm excercises. It starts with quarter notes, 8th notes and associated rests and
leads into 1/16th notes, rests and triplets. The excercises doesn't tell you what to play, it just tells you what
the rhythm should be. You could apply it to chord, chord progressions, scales, licks etc ...

I am just on page one and after working through it for 2 days, I am already seeing improvements.

I also have Troy's book mentioned by redpoint. It is good but I wanted a book that would exclusively focus on
rhythm.

I see what you mean now by a book on rhythm. That book looks great! I might pick it up for myself...
