Watch the Open Road Run online guitar lesson by Mike Zito from 30 Rootsy Acoustic Rhythms You MUST Know
Here's a cool little rhythmic run in E that makes things more interesting than just chording that you can use all over the guitar neck. I'm playing the open E string and hammering on the G note on the 3rd fret and then the 4th fret to land on the B note on the second fret of the A string. I continuing to hammer on the 4th and then 5th fret of the A string. I'm still playing the open E note as a drone as I work my way back down the A string to the 4th fret, 2nd fret. This last lick is playing the open E note, hammering on the 3rd fret for the G, striking the octave E note on the 2nd fret of the D string, and then playing the open E note again.
