If your rhythm skills are developed to the point where you can apply the "cowboy" chords further up the neck, all over the neck, fluently, this will serve you well in the long run. It will allow you to embellish lead solos with surrounding rhythm comps, doing both at the same time as you practice, once you reach a higher level of competence. All really good improvisers/soloists can harmonize their lead lines simultaneously to some extent, and it just comes with time...lots of time. (practice)

for $10 it's a steal and a great solo to appreciate how Jerry follows chord structure but also adds the right "extra" notes... You can't get around learning theory but I have found that learning the note for note with some explanation seems to make it stick more.
I'm no affiliation with him other that that I have bought some of his lessons.
