Hey guys I have decided to create a Rhythm Corner once a week every Tuesday I will be posting new exercises that will help you develop timing and be in the pocket!
All Lessons will be Tabs and GP 5 files!
There is only one rule:
ALWAYS PRACTICE THOSE EXERCISES USING A METRONOME AT A VERY SLOW TEMPO
If you not ignore ignore this rule you will harm the whole process of developing your timing!

Here are three exercises to start with!
