Rhythm Exercises in Common Time eBook

Let's face it unless you've spent a lot of time working with a metronome, your timing could do with some work. This is especially true as you play rhythm guitar at least 90% of the time.

While this is a reference eBook of over 200 guitar rhythm exercises, it's essential for every guitarist. So, become a better musician by sorting out your timing once and for all.

Learning Outcomes

  • How to play with a metronome
  • Feel the pulse of the music
  • Start to build a solid foundation


If you want to be considered a good musician, then you will need a solid foundation. As a guitarist, if you can't simply hold a tempo and play with feel then it's unlikely that your phone will be ringing. While that is harsh, it's sadly true.

Therefore if you want to play with other great musicians and be gigging often, then you need to sort out your timing and feel. Especially as you will spend 90% of your time playing rhythm guitar.

While Rhythm Exercises in Common Time eBook is a reference book, it does contain 200+ rhythm patterns and ideas. All of which when practised at varying speeds with a metronome will enable you to fine-tune your inner metronome and make you easier to play with.

It's best to start with either a single note on the G string or an open chord. As you build confidence, you can then move the exercises around a chord pattern or scale.

This guitar rhythm exercises eBook is divided into two sections. The first section covers one bar phrases. Whereas the second section uses 4 bar phrases. As this ebook does get progressively harder and even the most advanced guitar player will be challenged by this ebook.

Who is this eBook aimed at?

This eBook will enable every guitarist to practice their rhythm playing and therefore be easy to play with.
