This second example of "Chicago blues shuffle" rhythm guitar will augment the first example perfectly, as smaller two- and three-note voicings are moved up and down the top three strings of the fretboard. In bars 7 and 8, this approach moves into a more melodic territory, and the guitar part becomes even more active as we approach the end of the progression. You will hear Muddy Water's guitarist Jimmy Rogers play figures like these in his accompaniment of Muddy's guitar and vocals.
