Recently got into blues laden rock. really diggin the vibe blues gives rock and metal. i watched this video of Keith richards jamming on an acoustic and would love to be able to play like that. my problem is blending lead and rhythm. does anyone have any pointers on how to do it? can anyone explain to me exactly what hes doing in the video? chords, theory behind it?


He even says the chords that he playing at the end. A, D and E. It's a blues in A.

There's nothing particularly special in the video. He uses the open A, D and E strings to make a bassline, and he solos over the top, emphasises chord tones a lot
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
