As always, enjoyed your vid. Very informational and helpful. Quick question: You said to avoid the 4th, saying the 4th is "poison." Outside of a sus4 chord, I assume, why is this? Just curious as I'd never heard that opinion before.

A basic starting point for you to jam along with your friends band....
Starting at 4:26 of that link, you could play along by playing a D barre chord and sliding it up two frets to an E barre chord. You can get a little bobbyness out of it by letting the open E-string ring the whole time.
The basic jam is D to E over and over, so you could also try some different chord positions.
As far as single note soloing goes, think E-Mixolyidian. The b7 note of E Mixolyidian is D, so this is a match made in Heaven.
Here is the chord shape for the D and E barre chord. The D would start with the 5th string on the 5th fret, then slide the whole thing up two frets to E.
Let the 6th string ring the whole time.
Here is E Mixo. I like to start on the high-E string at the 12th fret and work downward from there in a Jerry-esque fashon.
Look at the bottom figure of these Mixo positions:
