Watch the Three of Four Rhythm online guitar lesson by Oz Noy from Twisted Guitar: Blues Rhythm

On this first study, we have a 3/4 groove that I'm going to show you. It's kind of reminiscent of the groove from "Manic Depression" by Jimi Hendrix, but the chords are minor, going from Ab minor to Gb minor.

With a Hendrix-style blues like this, a lot of times there's a bass line that's doubled by the bass player. So, we'll go through the bass line pattern, and then I'll show you a bunch of chords that can be played on top of it to create all sorts of different colors. Let's give it a listen.
