Watch the Flashy Jack: Rhythm 1 online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Rock Guitar 4: Rhythm Approaches

Flashy Jack: Rhythm 1 - Breakdown is a video guitar lesson presented by Andy Aledort and is sourced from Jam Night Vol. 1.


The B5 power chord that kicks off this example is fretted in an unconventional way, as I use the fret hand thumb wrapped around the top to the neck to sound the low B root note (sixth string/seventh fret) and then use a ring finger partial barre to fret F# and B at the ninth fret of the fifth and fourth strings, respectively. After the chordal accents on beats one and two, the remainder of bar 1 into bar 2 is executed with two-note partial barres fretted with the index and ring fingers ala Jimi Hendrix, alternated with the low B bass note. Bar 3 is a reprise of bar 1, but afterwards I follow with a descending single-note note line. All of the fills are based on B minor pentatonic (B D E F# A). A similar approach is used for the chorus part as each approriate power chord is accented on beats one and two, and each of the chorus chords is followed by a bass-line like riff that is transposed to each succesive chord in the progression. The part ends with a chordal stab on B7#9.
