Watch the Rock Shuffle online guitar lesson by Andy Irvine from 30 Beginner Bass Grooves You Must Know

The rock shuffle will be found in hundreds of songs along your musical path. Playing straight down the middle with steady pumping 8th notes always grooves the hardest and sounds the cleanest. Be cautious not to attack the bass too hard with your plucking hand, you want a tone that is warm, round, and full. Think of bouncing your fingers off the strings - not mashing them through the strings.
