Watch the Shuffle Up #2 online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Solo Factory: Chicago Blues

Shuffle Up #2 mixes "Sweet Notes", "4x4" and "5 For I" from the previous sections for a cool shuffle and a great second verse to go with Shuffle Up #1. A common thread on most of these licks is that they don't start on the down beat, but on an off beat. This is a very useful thing to be aware of as it is an essential element to soloing. By simply not starting on a down beat, beats 1 2 3 4, we can add a nice forward motion to any lick. So when learning this, or any solo, play close attention as to where they start on in the measure. You may be surprised how often it happens!
