    The one thing (well, not the only thing) that the greats do when soloing, is to employ rhythmic diversity.

    When I hear a solo of all one type of rhythmic value, I lose interest pretty quick.
    I have said it a million times, rhythmic choice is MORE important than notes.

    Beginners are always looking for that magic scale or pattern to make them sound great.
    I always tell them the notes they already know are enough. Make them groove.

    Exactly. I'll never forget Scott Henderson's example in his instructional video where he played Jingle Bells with all the wrong notes but with the correct rhythm. The tune could be recognized instantly.
