Watch the The Jones online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from The Rhythm Architect
We are laying blocks for the house with this guitar part. Solid, classic rhythm playing in the style of 'The Stones'. This guitar part shouldn't present any problems for most of you architects out there, just make sure that when you are adding the moving lines on top of the chords that they stay intonated!
There is a tendency to bend the notes sometimes making them sound out of tune, especially on the D chord moves. I'm guilty as charged your honor and have to make sure I don't fall prey to this too. I tend to play these kind of parts with a finger-style approach, as you'll see but there is no reason why you couldn't play this rhythm part with a pick. Try both if you feel so inclined and see which one works best for you.
