Here’s an example of playing with our “Hendrix”-y rhythm playing over a fun chord progression: C – E (or E7) – Am – G or a I – III – vi – V (1 3dom 6 5). I put the chords using these barre chords:

C – 6th String Barre Chord
E – 5th String Barre Chord
Am – 6th String Barre Chord
G – 6th String Barre Chord

By all means, start switching the barre chords and watch some of the annotated videos to get a better grasp on how to start getting this style of playing under your fingers. I have other chord progressions that I go through in different lesson videos. This is a great style of playing to get familiar with. Have fun!
