Listenin' Lucky - Rhythm Breakdown is a video guitar lesson presented by David Grissom and is sourced from Open Road Blues.
Let's breakdown the rhythm part of "Listenin' Lucky." In the first chorus, I used muting and laid off of 3rds to make a "chugging" rock riff. I used a higher voicing on the second chorus, channeling different rock sounds from Pete Townsend, AC/DC, and Keith Richards while still keeping off of the 3rds. The third chorus uses suspended chords to add a new flavor to the part.
