Watch the Shuffle Rhythm online guitar lesson by John Hatcher from Fingerstyle Blues Roots
This rhythm is used throughout the blues and can be heard in legendary songs like "Before You Accuse Me" and "Sweet Home Chicago". It's important. What's happening on the fretboard here isn't terribly complicated, but the magic is in the groove. Make sure that your shuffle has a little bounce to it. Get your foot tappin' and get into the groove.
