Watch the Pivots and Guides online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Rock and Pop Progressions Vol. 1
Pivoting fingers are ones that stay on the same string and same fret as you change chords. Guide fingers are ones that just slide up a fret. This common progression has both! So watch for the opportunities to use these as you go from E to Aadd9 to F#m7/11 and end up on Badd4.
