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

In this example, I play through the C-G-D-A-E progression eight times, adding slight twists to the execution of each chord as well as the way I move from one chord to the other. All of these chords are played using first-position "cowboy"-type voicings, and when I land on the final E chord in each sequence, I play single-note phrases based on the E minor pentatonic scale (E G A B D) and the E blues scale (E G A Bb B D).
