Watch the Stop-Time online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from 30 Blues Intros, Turnarounds, & Endings You MUST Know

The straight-eighths boogaloo groove supposedly has its origins in New York-based Latin music of the 1950's and 1960's. Lee Morgan's "The Sidewinder" is possibly the best-known jazz example of the sound, but Buddy Guy's arrangement of "Mary Had A Little Lamb" may be the blues equivalent. These licks will work well on the more James Brown-esque items in Junior Wells' catalog, too, like "Messin' with the Kid."
