Watch the One Way Street: Rhythm 1 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 1

I begin with root-fifth, root-sixth, root-seventh over A by simply picking the open A string along with three different notes fretted on the D string: E (the fifth), F# (the sixth) and G (the b7). This figure is then transposed up to D by moving up one pair of strings to the D and G strings, and later is transposed down to E by moving down one set of strings from A to the bottom two strings.
