Watch the Gin Soaked Queen: Rhythm 1 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 2

The chord progression demonstrated here, played in the key of G, is very simple in that it begins on the I (one) chord, G, moves to the IV (four) chord, C, back to G, then to II (two) major, A, followed by the V (five), D. The progression then wraps up I-V-I (G-D-G). As mentioned, Keith used an open G tuning when playing "Honkey Tonk Women," but this example demonstrates how to play rhythm guitar in that style while using a standard tuning. One method for emulating the open-tuning sound is to use as many open strings as possible, as I do repeatedly for all G chords and the many different riffs that are played over the G chord.
