Watch the Hittin’ All The Bars online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Solo Factory: Texas Blues

Like the previous two examples, this is a shuffle riff that will work over the 12 bar form. Like I mentioned early on, targeting the root is not always a bad thing for the beginner and intermediate player. We’re staying in home base pattern 1 here and you should be comfortable not only with the lick itself but, the position on the neck. Recognize the A's not only with your ears but your eyes. Learn where target notes are, hit them purposely when soloing.
