Watch the 12 AM online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 2
Once you delve into the sounds of classic soul and R&B, there are so many incredible songs that are fun to play, sing and solo over, and a great many of these songs are well established as standard fare at every jam night. This example is along the lines of the Wilson Pickett classic, "In The Midnight Hour," with a repeated I-IV (one to four) chord structure that wraps up like a blues form, with a move from the V (five) chord down to the four, which is repeated before returning to the I (one). Overall, this is a very catchy progression and is a lot of fun to be creative with.
