Using hybrid picking throughout, I sound the lowest notes in the triadic chord forms with the pick while the higher notes are sounded with fingerpicking. The advantage of bringing fingerpicking into the picture is that it allows one to emphasize the higher notes in each chord form. The pinkie is then used to add either the sixth or the ninth of each triad on either the B or high E string, respectively. In the last few bars before the chorus, improvised sliding sixth figures and single-note lines based on the G major pentatonic scale fill in the gap between the two sections. The fretted chord forms used in this rhythm part perfectly compliment the open-string-heavy chord forms demonstrated in the first approach to rhythm guitar, as fretted triads on the D, G and B strings are played against low root notes, fretted with the thumb, on the sixth string.
