Watch the Rolling Rock: Rhythm 2 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 2
If one were to listen to the few different live versions of "Like a Rolling Stone" as performed by Jimi Hendrix, one would see immediately the great creative freedom he took with his approach to navigating through the progression. This example of rhythm guitar begins by focusing on high chord voicings sounded mostly on the top four strings. This then shifts to a focus on the inside four strings, the A, D, G and B strings, for the verse section, in a style not unlike Jimi's major influences Curtis Mayfield and Ike Turner. Overall, the idea is to shift as seamlessly as possible from chordal work to single-note phrases to sliding sixths and arpeggiated partial chords in the development of an unpredictable and musical rhythm guitar performance.
