Introduction

When it comes to blues, we all love the idea of ripping into a face melting, 36 bar solo, taking the audience on a journey through time and space... But... without an absolutely locked down rhythm section, it would all fall apart! That’s the purpose of this course. I want to remind you guys that the blues is all about rhythm. Being able to grab a guitar, plug in, start tapping your foot and laying down a rock solid groove that the audience can’t help but move to, well, there’s your magic, baby! Everything else is born and thrives from that initial groove, so let’s dig into how we can master some proper rhythms!

I’m going to take you on a journey through 5 of the most important grooves in blues, helping you to ultimately unlock any blues track you wish to be able to play, just by listening to it.

Dan Holton

every rhythm you need!

So, the 5 blues grooves we will be diving into are The Classic Shuffle, The Texas Shuffle, The Slow Blues, The Moving Riff & The Minor Blues! Some of these may sound more familiar than others, as some have more obvious names, but understanding all 5 of these will enable you to play 90% of all blues records ever made. With each groove we learn a full track to apply the skill, as well as talk about the theory, timing and changing the key of each of these rhythms. By the end of the course, not only will you have 5 awesome blues tracks to play along with, you’ll also have a seriously deep understanding and grasp of the most important blues rhythms in history!
