Watch the Rhumba Blues online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Blues Alchemy
By mixing up low-end, single note riffs and a few well-chosen chord voicings, you can start unreeling a seemingly endless stream of inventive-sounding yet supportive choruses of rhythm guitar. There's a world of ideas out there beyond the guitar horizon, waiting to be pilfered by someone with a sense of adventure, the gift of groove, and a light touch with other people's (rhythmic) pockets. Someone like you. Check out the pianists, organists and horn sections on your favorite blues records, and steal like mad.
