Watch the Rhythmic Templates online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Latin Rock Lead

Chart number three is a rhythmic breakdown of one measure in 4/4 (common) time. As you view each of the four vertical columns, you will see how each beat can be subdivided thus yielding half notes, dotted half notes, quarter notes, eighth notes, 16th notes, and dotted 16th notes. In the video I will explain how to count these and play them on the guitar in terms of pure rhythm. Once you have these figures in your head and in your hands, you can then apply them as templates for your soloing ideas. Remember, "if you can count you can play it".
