On rhythm

Been thinking about rhythm lately and about how to practice it. Here are some ideas that I've worked with over the years:

1. Using a metronome
2. Singing out rhythms
3. Transcribing rhythms you like
4. Transcribing rhythms in your head
5. Playing Two part rhythms on guitar
6. Tapping out rhythms
7. Dancing/ Moving to Music
8. Mouth drum
9. Scatting out improvisational rhythm solos
10. Treating the guitar like a drum
11. Figuring out drum set/percussion sounds on guitar
12. Practicing at extremely slow tempos to develop accuracy and time-feel (40-60bpm)
