Watch the Rolling E Train online guitar lesson by David Grissom from Open Road Guitar
Study #2 is called Rolling E Train. In this one I'm going to play a blues over a train beat in mainly E mixolydian. I'm going to start with some triad bends where I bend down with my first finger. When I get to the IV7 chord I'm going back to some double stop chicken picking ideas. On the second chorus I'm going to use the concept of soloing within a chord that we discussed in the first section, I'm going to do this on the E chord. When I go to the IV7 chord I will take the same shape and move up to A to do the same thing there. To finish up this exercise I will use a cool chromatic lick on the V7 chord that utilizes some open strings and chicken picking.
