Watch the Grinder online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 30 Authentic Blues Grooves You MUST Know
Here it is, the no frills grinder in E. Never to be taken for granted, and easily overlooked. I know this is the basic blues boogie woogie pattern but the trick is playing it right! Sitting into the groove just right is the hard part. I also want to point out how hard I am hitting the strings, this is a big part of the sound. I also don't have too much gain on the amp because that'll ruin the sound. We are going for a big open blues tone. Don't be afraid to really dig in!
