Great topic David! This should also help answer the question "what should I do when improvising - I just play the same lick over and over?!"
By being creative with rhythm, you can re-use a lick/theme and make it sound completely different. This is done by changing accent and rhythm. This lesson is a great illustration of this - thanks David!

Music without rhythm is like prose without punctuation. In order to make a point, you need to play with rhythm. That's what we will focus on in this fusion lesson. I tried to play on repetition and rhythm variations here.
The key of this lesson is in A Dorian. Spend time memorizing the licks and try to apply these ideas to your own licks. The most important thing here is to focus on the flow of notes and rhythm ideas.
