Watch the Ham's Boogie in A 2 online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Fingerstyle Blues Factory

In this chorus, we'll be using double stop licks at the fifth fret for the I chord, while continuing to keep the open-position boogie groove going in between. Over the IV and the V chord, we'll make use of various syncopated chord-based figures, and wrap it all up with the four-measure Descending Diminisheds turnaround in the final four bars. As in the first chorus, our I chord moves involve playing a low fifth in the bass for the third thumb note of each measure (on the low string), for a bass note pattern of 5th string/4th string/6th string/4th string. This can be a lot to keep track of at first, so you might try isolating the bass line and practicing it on its own as one way to get it more under your fingers.
