Watch the Play It Straight online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know

When we play a blues we usually want to give it a swing feel. That Happy Trails feel bomba deeda, bomba deeda, bomba deeda feel. Well let's play it straight this time. So to get technical we have the swing eighth feel which we most often use on a blues, and a straight eighth note feel. Playing a blues like this can really change up an evening for the listener. It also makes us play differently, it is more of a rock feel which I love.
