Watch the Shuffle Rhythms online guitar lesson by Massimo Varini from Pop Guitar Survival Guide

In the pop music history there are many songs based on a shuffle rhythm. Often pop music is a mix of genres put together. Please make sure that the shuffle is a binary movement, so we can play in eighths on a shuffle feel. On each of the two eighths in a quarter, build a triplet, with the first two notes with a slur. Often in the beginning of a transcription is written "shuffle feel", then all the notes are written in sixteenths but must be played with a shuffle feel.
