People have been asking me for a lesson on how to play a blues shuffle, so here it is. It's a basic blues shuffle in the key of E. It is a 12 bar blues progression, and chords are E, A and B. The rhythm is played on only 2 strings at a time.
In order for you to make the most of this lesson, I recommend you get the Guitar Pro lesson provided below, so you can refer to the tab as you view the video lesson.
» Download this lesson in Guitar Pro 4 format. If you don't have Guitar Pro, I highly recommend you get it. It is a very good tool for learning. Get your copy of Guitar Pro - it is a great program, I highly recommend it.
I highly recommend you buy Guitar Pro - it's the best software I have found for learning guitar tabs. All my lessons will from now on come with Guitar Pro files. You can download a trial version on the Guitar Pro website to see if you like it (I think you will).
I have lots of gear demos too on this site. Go and take a look at some of my Guitar Videos for some examples of gear I use or have used.
Thanks Soren, I am very, very glad to hear you say that!Comment added on October 19, 2010
I've been watching quite a bit of your lessons by now, and I really just wanted to congratulate you on being the absolute best teacher on the entire net.
Your lessons are very usable, whilst there are lessons both difficult and not so difficult, and all of them are easily understandable.
Cheers and a big thank you from Denmark
