Watch the Rollin' In Your Arms: Rhythm 2 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 3
This part begins with a hammer-on from E to F#--the second to the major third--on the A string over the D chord, with the index finger barred across the D, G and B strings at the seventh fret. After the C chord, voiced on the top four strings, I moved to a G/B chord voicing wherein I use a hammer-on from A to B, placing the third as the lowest note in the voicing (known as a first inversion chord voicing). While strumming in steady eighths, fret-hand pressure is released in order to produce the dead-string accents that drive the rhythm part along. Similar hammer-ons occur over the F and C chords towards the end of the progression as a means of injecting subtle melodic sensibility into the part.
