Watch the 12 AM: Rhythm 1 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 2

The intro of this segment features a chord progression not included in the verse or chorus: it begins in creative fashion on the bVII (flatted seventh), D in the key of E, followed by the V7 (five dominant), B7, then the IV7 (four dominant), A7 and the bIII (flatted third), G. The verse and chorus section are primarily comprised of I-IV (one to four) chord progressions of E7 to A7, and during the verse and chorus sections I like to switch between chordal accents and single-note bass-like lines.
