Watch the What We Are: Rhythm 2 online guitar lesson by Trey Alexander from Quantum Rock

This rhythm is very Van Halen influenced!! It is a lot like the first rhythm but this time we arpeggiate the riff a bit and add a couple quick descending lines. This can be very powerful especially when playing with a very high energy drummer. The cool thing about these courses is the backing tracks really allow you to jam over them to simulate the feeling of being in a real band. Jam with these tracks as much as possible. Also try and play with as many musicians as you can. I think that it is important to feel the other musicians energies which will provide you with the biggest learning tool of all, natural feel!! You will also notice some small guitar solos thrown in. A lot of my playing is based off being in a three piece band. This is where I had to learn to fill up the band because there were no keyboards to do that job. So a lot of times I play small parts of rhythms and then do the solos in between to make a fuller sound.
