Watch the Country Swingin' in E online guitar lesson by Mike Zito from 30 Rootsy Acoustic Rhythms You MUST Know

For this rhythm, we'll start with a big open E chord with the D string open that starts out minor but very quickly resolves by hammering on the the major 3rd on the G strings first fret. Then, throw in the 7 on the B strings 3rd fret to wrap it around. This has honky tonk written all over it and is just a cool sounding groove.
