Watch the Medium Shuffle online guitar lesson by Steve Lasner from Blues Expose

Josh walks through the Medium Shuffle rhythm performance and explores an efficient alternative fingering for this common Boogie Woogie rhythm pattern. One hidden obstacle in this lesson is the muted center string when playing on non-adjacent string pairs. Be sure you are effectively dampening the unwanted string with your left hand fingers. Also remember to avoid tensing up your pick hand – you may find that you get cleaner results by almost ‘brushing’ the strings with the pick, rather than digging in too hard.
