Watch the Sweet Shuffle #1 online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Solo Factory: Chicago Blues
Sweet Shuffle is based on Magic Sam's essential version of Robert Johnson's "Sweet Home Chicago". It's a basic 12 bar blues in E that uses a classic boogie woogie feel. Sometimes this feel is referred to as a "grinder" for it's driving beat. On this one I start off with some sliding 3rds, outline the IV7 chord, and end with a sweet V7-IV7- I7 lick and a classic Chicago turnaround. This solo can be used as a great intro to the tune as well as the main solo!
