    ➢➢➢

    Never again will we be stuck for a rhythm accompaniment part to play at jam night, with our ultimate blues rhythm guitar study, presented by Bobby Harrison.

    “Eleven By Twelve” gives us eleven rhythm guitar ideas to play over a 12 bar shuffle groove. Our long backing track allows us to experiment with stabs, sliding 9ths, imitation horn lines, off-beat parts, organ-style riffs, the Texas Shuffle, Uptown and Downtown Chicago riffs and many more, giving us plenty of options for tonal variety.

    #BluesGuitarLessons #BluesRhythmGuitar #BluesGuitarCourse

    We conclude this lesson with a short summary of everything we’ve covered so far in this part of our course, followed by more tips on improvisation and solo construction, before being given a brief overview of some of the exciting content we can expect to study over the coming lessons.

    For reference, here is the order in which the rhythm guitar parts were performed over the backing track. Feel free to play them in your preferred order, but be aware that in the cases of the Uptown and Downtown shuffles, the bass line on the backing track changes accordingly.

    Detailed Tab for each approach can be found in the individual rhythm guitar studies at the beginning of Level 2.

    Stabs
    Sliding 9ths
    Imitation Horn Lines
    Jump blues-style offbeats
    Organ-style riffs

    This is something every guitarist should know. From beginner to advanced,

    I talk briefly about the chords you can play over a Blues Progression, in A Major.
    I then show you something I think every guitarist should know - how to play Blues Rhythm Guitar using only the minor seventh and the major third from the chords. These modified chords can be referred to as shell voicings.

    I then show you how you can experiment and modify these shell voicings by adding more notes to the top two strings or adding the root notes on the E and A strings.

  • What to do when playing blues rhythm guitar

    5:46

    Tuesday Blues #216

    You're sitting next to another guitarist. Someone says, play some blues and they kick off the classic shuffle. You could just follow along or...

    How about adding a little something different to the mix?

    In this lesson, we'll take a look at three blues rhythm guitar ideas for you to complement the standard blues shuffle.

    1. Improvise a walking bassline
    2. Add chord moves (stabs, chromatics and slides)
    3. Combine chord moves and micro licks

    Try these quick tricks out and I'm sure you'll agree that things sound full and interesting versus just doubling the shuffle.

    Good luck and...

    Play On!

    John

    Sick of those same old blues rhythm guitar shuffles and barre chords? Kick your blues rhythm chops up a notch with this blues rhythm lesson and discover how to use chord fragments, ninth chords and rhythm riffs in your rhythm guitar style.

    Blues Rhythm Chops Ex 1: Chord Fragments

    Chord Fragments are fragments of larger chords and they are powerful blues rhythm guitar tools. See this example to learn how to use them straight away in your playing.

    Blues Rhythm Chops Ex 2: 9th Chords

    9th chords can act as substitutes for Dominant 7 chords, so instead of playing A7 in your 12 bar blues, you could play A9 instead. This adds much more colour to the 12 bar blues (and makes you sound like a way slicker player!)

    Blues Rhythm Chops Ex 3: Blues Bassline Riffs

    Why not ditch chords all together...and play a blues bassline riff instead! Here's one example of a blues bassline riff you can use. Try out some riff variations of your own remember.

    Have fun spicing up your blues rhythm chops with this lesson and see you next time!

  • Basic secret to blues rhythm guitar

    16:33

    For more information from the source site of this video please visit:

    Once we have learnt how to strum our way round a 12-bar blues rhythm chart the next thing to get a handle on is how to play basic shuffle patterns.

    Shuffle patterns have many varieties from the slow blues...
    Straight 8 Rhythm n Blues...
    The more complex rock n roll beat...
    To the breakneck style of rockabilly...

    Plus almost infinite variations on each of these.All based on the development of one simple idea.

    The basic shuffle pattern is often called the added 6th shuffle pattern.

    As we mentioned in the lesson on power chords all numbers used in chord symbols reference the Major scale. We start with the E major scale pattern as shown in this diagram. We isolate the key note E, and the fifth note B and play them together to make a two note power chord rooted on the open E string like this.Then on the second and fourth beat of the bar we Add the Sixth note of the scale.And that's how to play the basic added sixth shuffle pattern over an E chord. In TAB form it looks like this:

    Although simple, technically there are a couple of details to observe that will really help you improve the sound of your shuffle pattern. Firstly, on the left hand. Allow your first finger to collapse lightly across the remaining strings to mute them so that they don't resonate or sound if you accidentally hit them

    Meanwhile on the picking hand..

    First, be absolutely certain that on all eight strokes you are hitting through both the E and the A strings, Then add a little palm muting by letting your picking hand encroach onto the strings from the bridge...

    Once you have got that just right you can actually strike the strings a lot harder and that's what gives the shuffle its rhythmic power. It's a bit like driving with the brakes on!

    OK so I am going to strongly suggest that you invest a fair amount of time just fine tuning the sound of that basic pattern before moving on. Next let's look at how we move this idea through a 12-bar progression.

    First we play 4 bars on E. Then we move the whole idea across one string to play over A like this.Then back to E for two bars. When we come to the B chord, to make things easy to play we invert the idea like this

    So the Tab for that looks like this:

    Then we jump to a bar of A.Before returning to 2 bars of E to complete the 12-bar. Here's that last line one more time:

    Now is a good time to click on the Printout tab In the toolbox to the right of the screen and print off a copy of the Tab sheet for you to follow as you practice this 12-bar sequence through a few times.

    Now this is the basic added sixth shuffle which you want to make sure you master really well before making things more complex. Once you are on top of it here are some of the many variations you can experiment with:

    Adding the major third note on the bass string... (Talk through -- used on the E and A but not B))

    Adding the flatted third to that. Adding the flatted seventh.


    So there you go -- a few basic ideas to act as primer -- from there I suggest experimenting using your ears to judge what works and what doesn't.

    Later I might film a lesson on rockabilly technique which is a good way to develop these skills to their extreme!

    Meanwhile Have fun! See you next lesson

    Fill #1:

    This is a very easy lick that works very well going from the I to IV chord, also works well over the I to VIm chord.

    Fill #2

    This little sliding lick sounds great in a ballad, easy but very tasty if used in the right spot.

    Fill #3

    This fill sounds real nice over a IVm chord

    Fill #4

    This fill using 6ths is great for ballads where you are staying on a static chord.

    Fill #5

    This lick is very similiar to the previous one, except this one uses 3rds.

    Fill #6

    This one leads nicely back to the I chord, easy and effective.

  • Blues Rhythm Guitar Lesson: Easy 2 Note Chords 12 Bar Blues

    8:55

    - This is an easy way to jump in at any open jam and play a 12 bar blues without getting the way of the soloist.

    The chords are based off the traditional 7th and 9th chord shapes that most people are familiar with. But we get rid of all but 2 notes and the voice leading makes it so you only have to shift one fret at a time.

    It's a great move that I use all the time with a band. It shouldn't take long to learn and will be useful forever.

  • 3 DELTA BLUES Rhythms You Need to Learn Now

    12:44

    Tuesday Blues #245:

    5 SIMPLE STEPS TO BETTER SLIDE GUITAR:


    There's nothing quite like running a slide up and down the strings. The smooth connected sound gives the guitar a voice and this technique was used quite a bit (understatement!) in DELTA BLUES.

    In this lesson, we're doing to take a look at 3 DELTA SLIDE Rhythms that you should know.

    1. If I Had Possession/Rollin & Tumblin - This riff is one of my favorite things to play with a slide. It's short and to the point but packs a punch.

    2. Travelling Riverside Blues - Robert Johnson gave us a lifetime's worth of slide material to study. In this tune, there's a quick little riff that repeats itself throughout the tune. It's similar to If I Had Possession but a little more stripped down. This one is ripe for adding many subtle variations.

    3. Something Like Son House - Let's face it, Son House's rhythm playing is otherworldly. Take a listen to the busy but effective strumming he gets going in Death Letter Blues for a great example of his wild skill. In this video, we'll look at a busy rhythm part inspired by Death Letter Blues.

    I hope you enjoy these 3 Rhythms, they are certainly fun to play and get you stuck into that DELTA BLUES sound.

    Good luck and...

    Play On!

    John

  • Blues Rhythm Guitar Lesson - Shuffle Guitar Patterns | Wes Theobald

    3:45

    A blues shuffle is one of the first kind of grooves many guitarists learn to play. It is heard throughout many famous blues, rock, and jazz recordings. This guitar lesson will show you 5 different ways to approach playing blues rhythm guitar over a simple 12 bar blues in A.

    LICK ONE
    The example begins with the guitar part doubling the bass line. Mimicking the bass line is a good place to start with your rhythm guitar playing because it leaves plenty of space for the vocal or other instruments and will not clash with anything. The second bar uses a short chordal idea that moves from a D triad to an A triad. The sound of the IV over the I chord is very common in a lot of blues and gospel music and works well over each chord in a blues.
    LICK TWO
    The second lick uses another simple but highly effective approach to playing blues rhythm guitar. Guide tones are a two note interval (usually either fourths, fifths, or tritones) that clearly define the chord quality. In this example the guide tones are the 3 and b7 of D7 (F# and C). You can easily play through an entire blues by moving this shape around in half steps. Moving the 3/b7 shape up a half step produces A7 and up another half step gets you E7.

    Another thing this lick shows is the use of iim7 chords over the dominant chord. In this case, the iim7 of D7 would be Am7. Moving the F# up a half step to G gives you the guide tones for Am7 (G-b7, C-b3). This opens up the sound of the rhythm playing and can make playing over dominant chords sound more modern.

    LICK THREE
    The third idea uses another set of triads over the root note to create a dominant sound. This lick goes between F# minor and E minor triads. With an A in the bass these two triads combine to make an A13 sound. This is another very common sound for blues rhythm guitar and you can often hear players like Stevie Ray Vaughan use it in their playing.

    A13: A C# E G B D F# (1 3 5 b7 9 13)
    F#m: F# A C# (13 1 3)
    Em: E G B (5 b7 9)

    LICK FOUR
    The fourth lick uses the same chordal idea as the third but changes the triads to work over E7 and D7. Over E7 the two triads are C#m and Bm. The D7 is played using the same shapes over Bm and Am chords but leaves the notes on the B string unplayed.

    LICK FIVE
    The example ends with a chordal lick based around a traditional blues ending. This idea harmonizes a standard bass walk up ending with a descending melody line on top. The contrasting movement in the bass and melody create interest and tension before resolving back at the tonic with an A9 voicing. Working out chord ideas like this is a great way to get a start in solo guitar playing.
