Watch the Rockin' House online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Blues Guitar Fakebook: Rhythm Vol. 2

This tune is kind of tricky because it can be a little tiring, so take your time with it and be patient. Much of the sound is coming from my right hand constantly playing the eighth note rhythm. This is an essential element to guitar playing and his style in particular. The right hand constantly playing the underlying pulse propels the music forward and helps you sit into the groove properly. In my experience, songs like this cannot be played properly unless you get this technique together - it will easily make its way into all aspects of your guitar playing, blues or not.
