Watch the Shuffle E Solo online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Advanced Blues Soloing
Let's get started with a classic shuffle in the key of E. To start, let's get some lingo going on so you can be with the in crowd:
The blues form is 12 bars long most of the time. In blues and jazz, one time through the entire form of the progression is referred to as a chorus. So, when the solo I'm playing is same solo for two choruses, it's two times through the complete form. Getting the lingo together is important, as in a pop song a chorus is very different. So, it's all about the context. Understanding feels is just important, for example this feel is called a shuffle. Other feels are boogaloos, rumbas, boogie-woogies, etc.
