Rhythm is probably one of the most important things in music.
We often like a song because of the melody, but what really triggers us is the rhythmical flow.
It does not have to be difficult or advanced, just good.
We do not listen to the pitch of the note you play, we do not listen to what notes and how fast you play the notes. A good rhythm and well placed notes is what most people listen to as the first thing when they listen to music.
This is why rhythm is the most important thing!
