Watch the Don't Lose Your Pride 1 online guitar lesson by Richard Van Bergen from Down Home Boogie & Blues Guidebook

This next one is the basic groove of my composition "Don't Lose Your Pride", which I recorded on my first solo album Rootbag. It's an example of a slow, swampy boogie groove. First I'll show you the basic groove, followed by the melody played simultaneously with the vocals. This is very common in pre-war blues and also used extensively by Jimi Hendrix.
