Watch the Riverside online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 1
With classic, well-loved songs like "Cinnamon Girl," "Down By The River," "Keep On Rockin' In the Free World," "Heart of Gold" and so many others, the music of Neil Young is usually present at just about every jam you will find. His songs are all perfectly constructed and generally feature only two, three or four chords in each section, making them perfect for improvisational flights for rhythm guitar and for soloing. The examples here, which move between Em7 and A7, are akin to what is heard on "Down by The River."
