In 3 pages this is the first suggestion to tap it out. This is how I figure out difficult rhythms. The left hand taps the beat, the right hand taps out the notated rhythm. Once you know what the rhythm is supposed to be playing it is only a matter of getting the notes right.

Thanks for the +1, Steve. I had despaired of ever being able to read certain rhythms (like 2 against 3) when I was a kid learning with traditional lessons and then discovered as an adult that I could learn difficult rhythms this way. That is why I rarely buy a song book without a cd included with it (that and the fact that I've learned to do my own by ear arrangements).
