I'm using A-Em7-G-GMa7/A-Em7-G. This pattern alternates between hitting the down beat and up beat. We'll be using using the right hand mute on the 2nd beat to give the pattern its punch. The rest of the time we use an open, flowing down-up movement to give the pattern its feel of movement and forward motion.
It's a relaxed, easy going feel.
