Here’s a new blues shuffle video, this time in the key of A! A real bag of licks here, with some inspiration from players like Eric Clapton, Matt Schofield, Josh Smith and others. Enjoy!
About Blues Shuffle Guitar Solo
This blues shuffle guitar solo is played over parts A & B of the backing track (see below). Part A is a basic 12-bar blues in A, where part B (‘the chorus’) is an 8-bar vamp that starts from the IV chord (D7). In the B-section, the B3 Hammond organ enters for a fuller, sound and the bass starts ‘walking‘ in the groove. I love playing over shuffles with ‘real-life’ musicians, so I spend quite some time on the drums & bass to create a natural shuffle groove. Part C is a break, where drums & bass play a little softer, and the harmony stays on the I-chord (A7) twice as long. Enjoy!
Is it okay to post some of this on my page if I post a reference to this page?
Sure – if you leave a link to my website, I’d appreciate that! Maarten
