Watch the Rocking Chair: 1 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Cubed

Downshifting once more to a Granola-level tempo Rocking Chair is a two chord jam that celebrates another MUST know progression-- the I to bVII. Aptly titled you’ll find yourself slowly rocking back and forth to this unabashed slow jam that’s packed with power chord muscle. Set in Am Rocking Chair makes use of a tried-and-true chromatic sequence between bVII and I, but with a twist. Guitar 2 plays the role of response to Guitar 1’s call and together they meet at the end of the eight bar sequence to create an overall piquant E7b9b13 texture that’s sure to rumble the basement rafters.

Guitar 3 is back to solo mode and with gusto, I might add. Playing off the Grand Canyon-sized space Guitars 1 & 2 provide there’s all kinds of new elements to take in including sextuplets and 32nd notes as well as the triumphant return of the double stop bend. If you're shakin' in your boots over the advanced looking subdivisions, no worries--the tempo is a mild 65 bpm.
