Both Kinds of Music Chords and Progression

The three chords in this progression use two of the most common chord shapes known to man. E Major is a moveable chord shape which means you can move the shape up the neck to play other chords. The Root note of the chord is E. If you move the chord shape up to the A at the 5th fret, barring the 5th fret with your index finger then you'll be playing an A Major chord. So you can play all 12 Major chords using just this chord shape by moving it up and down the neck.

Similarly with the chord shape that's being played for the A Major chord. This time the Root note is on the 5th string, the open A for the A Major chord. The B Major chord uses the same shape moved up the neck 2 frets. You can use this chord shape to play all 12 Major chords just like you can with the chord shape that has its Root note on the 6th string for E Major.

One chord shape, 12 chords, how cool is that!

Both Kinds of Music Scale Suggestions

The E Major Pentatonic scale sounds good over this progression. Scale on starts on the 6th (low E) string and works its way up to 4th position. 4th position means that your index finger is located at the 4th fret. This allows you to cover over 2 Octaves with only one shift in position when you move from the 2nd to the 4th fret (with your ring finger) on the 4th (D) string.

Moving down the scale you shift your index finger from the 4th fret down to the 2nd fret on the 4th string.

The 2nd scale shown starts in 7th position and moves through 2 Octaves of the E Major Pentatonic scale where it finishes on the 12th fret of the 1st (high E) string. The pattern starts off similar to scale shown in figure 1 except it ends up with slightly different fingering. Also similar to pattern 1 there is only one position shift for this scale in pattern 2; when you need to shift position from the 9th fret up to the 11th fret.

Both Kinds of Music Bass Tab

The bass is a laid back country kind of feel with a bit of a bounce to it. Just imagine those line dancers grooving away to your bass. Add some notes from the Major Pentatonic scales if you want to liven it up a little.
