Watch the 5-4-1 Shuffle Groove online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from Bass Groove Survival Guide

Now we will play all 3 shuffle patterns back to back, I will play each pattern once, 12 bars in all, then you play each pattern. Imagine the song building in intensity as you play each pattern, again, you can help the bass lines get that bouncy shuffle feel by accenting the downbeats and shortening the length of notes , not giving the dotted eighth note its full value.
