Watch the Zapped online guitar lesson by Joe Deloro from Blues Rock Road Trip 2

"Boogie"' is the word that best describes the style of this lesson. It's generally the term that's used for blues shuffles, and blues rock, that vamp on one or two chords. Zapped takes us down that well-travelled road one more time with two pedal-to-the-metal phrases.


In American music, boogie's origins are in southern boogie woogie, juke, and house party music of the early 20th century. Although usually uptempo, boogies can be slow to moderate as well. For examples, start with the music of John Lee Hooker. Although power chords and/or a pedal bass generally provide the backing for boogies, the sound here is a bit jazzier with a V7, ii7 chord/vamp of B7, F#m7 for both phrases.
