Watch the Open Road in E online guitar lesson by Mike Zito from 30 Rootsy Acoustic Rhythms You MUST Know
Here's a great rhythm that has that open road feel. Big open E chord with all of those open string sounds makes for a full sound and accompaniment. I'm throwing in the A octave note on the G string to alternate the pattern between E/A, giving it a suspended sound. I'm also using the F# note on the low E string to kind of complete the pattern and start again on the open E.
