Watch the Hoochie Mama: Rhythm 2 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 3

Jimi Hendrix liked to play the primary riff of "Hoochie Coochie Man" in fifth position, which is the approach I emulate here. Each phrase ends with unison A notes, this time moved to the open A string along with the D string, followed by small chordal arpeggiations with inherent melodic content over each chord in the progression.
