The music between the notes
  Silence is also important in live music. You can usually tell someone is an amateur musician if they rush through the rests. Sometimes there may be a rest written into the music as long as a whole measure. Often a less schooled player will get nervous that too much silence is going by and come in a beat or a half a beat early. They do not realize that silence is golden.

Of course in rock music there is almost never silence. Same in jazz. Actually, I think the same is true in celtic music and most other forms of folk music... except there is the thing called a "tacit". That is when everything stops except the melody line. And there is a great moment of silence near the end of the Dead's Anthem of the Sun. On Celtar there is a cool tacit in the song "Dangerous". The silence lasts about a quarter of a beat.

Hey, it's not much, but it's better than nothing!
