Watch the She’s Sweet online guitar lesson by Adam Levy from 50 Low-Down Rhythms You MUST Know

Once again, we turn to Steve Cropper for inspiration. His work with Otis Redding is an encyclopedia of no-nonsense rhythm guitar. This lick is the kind of thing Cropper would play to fire-up a mid-tempo song. Notice the accents on beats two and the and of three, rather than the typical two and four. That emphasis is the heart and soul of this lick.
