Watch the Bird 'n' Some Beast online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 1

No open jam is complete without a handful of Rolling Stones classics, and "Beast of Burden" is a perfect example of rocked up R&B/soul as interpreted by Stones guitarist Keith Richards. One of the coolest things about this type of chord progression is the steady movement between relative major chord, E, and relative minor chords, C#m. It's a lot of fun to devise different ways to move back and forth between these two chords when playing rhyhtm guitar as well as when soloing. In each turn through the progression E-C#m is followed by the four chord, A.
