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

"Checking Uptown" uses a classic uptown groove and is also on one of my favorite blues tunes, "Checking on My Baby" from Sonny Boy Williamson. The secret to a tune like this is just locking into the groove and sticking to it. No variation, just dynamics and groove.
