A Key Concept of “Song Rhythm Tracks”
Here is such a key concept behind Song Rhythm Tracks –
The drumming always, always needs to follow the form of the song
Drummers know this; Amateurish use of rhythm tracks often don’t. https://alivedrumming.com/song-form-rhythm-tracks
No getting around it, if you accompany someone on the drums you need to always be outlining the song’s form and if you arrange your own rhythm tracks, you need to do the same.

How to get great timing? – Y.S. Bach view
“It’s easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.”

Yep, timing is everything. The right note played at the wrong time is the wrong note. So how do we get a great sense of timing? By always playing with great, inspiration rhythm tracks like Song Rhythm Tracks. You will internalise the timing on so many levels from the swing within the bar to musical structure of the song. Without trying you will listen and learn from great rhythm artists. You can do much the same playing along with artists recordings except you'll have to make sure you don't get in their way!

“The most exciting rhythms seem unexpected and complex, the most beautiful melodies simple and inevitable.” ― W.H. Auden view
The most exciting rhythms seem unexpected and complex, the most beautiful melodies simple and inevitable ― W.H. Auden
How true! The thing is there is nothing rhythmically complex about the mechanical rhythm of drum machines. They may impress for the first bar but after that, the sheer monotonous of them is their downfall. Lost is all those wonderful inner rhythms that drummers develop that play out over many bars as a response to the structure, or musical form, of the song. For that, you need recordings of great drummers over whole sections of music and truly smart arranging to bring everything together. That's what you get with Song Rhythm Tracks.
