Watch the Swinging Eighth Note Shuffle online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Jump Start Bass Guitar
This lesson uses the swing(shuffle) eighth note groove as its rhythmic foundation. I will demonstrate a number of variations of quarter note and eighth note combinations against the jam tracks.
You will also hear various articulations in which I am combining legato and staccato approaches. This means I will play the notes long(legato) or short(staccato). That's where your picking and fretting hand dampening come into play.
Your jam tracks will be in two formats: drums only and drums with rhythm guitar. This will allow you to practice any note combination on your own with the drum only track.
