Jan Rivera: Advanced Rhythmic Concepts for Guitar; Foreword By Alex Machacek

Advanced Rhythmic Concepts for Guitar is a step by step guide through the process of identifying, dissecting, constructing, practicing and applying: Metric Modulations, Polyrhythms, “Ratio” Polyrhythms, Polyrhythm Divisions/Polyrhythms within Polyrhythms, Intrinsic Polymeters, Extrinsic Polymeters, Polymetric Accompaniment, and Polymetric Improvisation. The book features audio examples and is displayed in both standard notation and guitar tablature.

“I wish I’d had this book 20 years ago…”

- ALEX MACHACEK (solo artist, "NOW" w/ Gary Husband, "In This Life" w/Virgil Donati, trio w/Terry Bozzio and Jimmy Johnson, "24 Tales" w/ Marco Minnemann)

"Jan Rivera's book is clear, thorough, and methodical, and will be an asset to anyone wishing to improve in the area of rhythm. Having the fluency to freely play with polyrhythms and polymeters is a valuable skill for the modern improvisor, and careful study of this book will provide the student with the tools needed to achieve this."

- BEN MONDER (solo artist, Miguel Zenón)

"Guitarist Jan Rivera has produced a thorough, easy to understand guide to metric modulation that will be very useful to any serious musician. There are hundreds of examples in this book illustrating and breaking down rhythmic concepts in pragmatic ways that will make their applications possible. Highly recommended".


"Rhythm is such an important and under nourished aspect of playing and studying music. Jan Rivera has come up with an informative, challenging and clear concept for understanding and using complex rhythms. The book is called "Advanced Rhythmic Concepts For Guitar", but I really feel that this book will benefit any musician; no matter what instrument they play. Just the Ratio Polyrhythms section is a great help in organizing one's thinking about that difficult subject. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is serious about improving their overall knowledge of how rhythms work and more importantly how to use them effectively."

-DEAN BROWN (Brecker Brothers, DB3 w/ Victor Wooten and Dennis Chambers)

“Jan Rivera’s Advanced Rhythmic Concepts for Guitar” is a very articulate course that takes the reader very deep into the rhythmic possibilities in music. Jan explains each rhythmic situation very clearly and offers plenty of practical musical examples of these rhythms. The examples are complete with guitar tablatures. This book is a very valuable source of information and inspiration for any guitarist at intermediate to advanced level. Highly recommended.”

- ANTTI KOTIKOSKI ("Cave Men" w/ Vinnie Colaiuta and J.K. Kleutgens, "Generator" w/ Richard Hallebeek, Frank Gambale, Scott Henderson, Scott Kinsey and Carl Verheyen)

"Jan Rivera's "Advanced Rhythmic Concepts for Guitar" book will definitely take your rhythm chops to a higher level. The studies are interesting, original, and in-depth. This book is definitely an essential item in any serious guitarist's library. I'm glad I already have my copy!"

- GUSTAVO ASSIS-BRASIL (Author: Hybrid Picking Lines and Licks for Guitar: Foreword by Guthrie Govan)

“Although there are countless of guitar books on the market relating to scales, modes, theory and licks, I can’t recall even one book that covers the topic of rhythm, much less polyrhythms. We guitarists are infamous for our total lack of rhythmic skills, so I definitely suggest this book if you want to set yourself apart from the competition. It is well written and easy to understand. I plan to dedicate part of my practice time to the exercises in the chapters. Thanks for putting this together Jan!”

Gary Hoey, Ron Thal: The Guitar Gods Tour - independent artist and need your help.

Gary Hoey and Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal will be joining The Guitar Gods Tour in the US. We are independent artist and need your help.

Hi friends, I'm Gary Hoey and my friend Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal are heading on the road for the GUITAR GODS TOUR (featuring Yngwie Malmstein and Uli Jon Roth). We need your help to bring all our bandmates and crew on this crazy tour. Five weeks and 13,000 miles of bouncing around the US and Canada is no easy task when you are an independent artist. We will do anything for our fans. We had this crazy idea we could all share one rhythm section to make the tour financially possible, but Bumblefoot and I said HECK NO! We have to take our bands, that's what our fans want. Of course, this is going to cost a crap load of cash! $13,000 in fuel just for starters. paying for band, crew, insurance, food (They don't work for pizza and beer anymore) All the funds we raise will go to the expenses of this tour. And if we don't reach our goal, no one gets charged a dime. We will offer some great rewards for your support. And any pledge even $5 will get you access to the exclusive video diary from the road we will be adding often. We can't thank you enough and we hope to see you on the Guitar Gods Tour, best regards from Gary and Bumblefoot. Rock on!
