Example AVETT BROTHERS style
[Bar 14] Sometimes you’ll find figures like these on the second and third strings, 3rd based double-stops that just get you briefly away from straight chord playing. They are useful because the same old chord progressions can end up sounding just like… the same old chord progressions! Experiment with adding these types of phrases to your own rhythm playing. [Bar 20] This F major 7 with the C as the bass note is a common and useful voicing – it gets you away from the clunky sounding F major barre chord and also sounds great! [Bar 26] By now you’ll have noticed that the rhythms are predominantly quavers/eighth notes and semi- quavers/16th notes. For this reason your strumming hand wants to be really relaxed with this style and be able to shift seamlessly between these two rhythmic values.
