    This is just a rough demo of me playing my Gretsch 5122 with a chord progression that I came up with.

    Em7/Em (remove pinky from 3rd fret B string)
    Alternate picking strings:
    E, A, B(pinky), G, E, D, B(no pinky), G.

    Cadd9/Cmaj7 (remove pinky from 3rd fret B string)
    Alternate picking strings: A, D, B(pinky), G, E, D, B(no pinky), G.

    *PLAY THIS PROGRESSION THREE TIMES*
    Then, go to Am, B7, and repeat the progression....

    It just begs for some type of solo, guitar riff, ....something... in Em pentatonic.

    Cool, sounds like a Scorpions ballad with the chorus effect. :)

    Thanks... It was something I came up with, and figured I'd share the progression in case anyone had something to add to it and/or came up with a solo/riff that would go with it.

    LOL.... My wife was at work, I was home from my morning school bus run, and decided to plug in and doodle around on that progression.

    It's 9:16 am, I'm up, and listening to good guys do good music. Sweet wife is cleaning and dusting house, she's an early riser too. I won't ask her whether this is better than Dust In The Wind. though. In fact she doesn't appreciate me like I appreciate you guys. Imagine that! She's filipina. Ano Bayan !!
