Watch the Catch My Drift online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Blues Rock Grooves Vol. 2

As I stated in my introduction of this tune, I like blues with a specific riff. As we know all too well, we go to a blues jam and it turns into a night of shuffles in E. If you walk in knowing a tune like this, it's very easy for the musicians to pick up on the riff and lock into it with you.

As you can see, there is a guitar stab on the top two strings on the 2 beat. If I were to play this song with another guitar player I'd separate those parts as Fleetwood Mac did. There is a real skill to playing a song like this, and that comes down to locking into the groove and playing with dynamics. All you need to do is listen to the original version of the song to understand what I'm talking about. I highly recommend you practice along with the jam tracks included, with my video, and the original version of "Drifting" by Fleetwood Mac.
