You can check out the covers/table of contents for back issues to get a good idea of the songs.

It is pretty much the only guitar magazine I like. Their online material is great too (check it out now that you have the magazine)... most of it accessible using the monthly password.

I'm not sure whether there are songs that go with them or whether they are just a collection of rhythms, but next time your in a music store, you could flip through one and see what you think.
