Watch the Texas Shuffle online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 6: Soloing Principles

Texas Shuffle - Solo Breakdown is a video guitar lesson presented by David Hamburger and is sourced from Blues Alchemy.


You can think of a Texas shuffle as being a more swinging version of a Chicago shuffle. Texas blues in general has been strongly influenced by jazz; you can hear it in the walking basslines and in the horn sections of bluesmen like T-Bone Walker, Gatemouth Brown and Albert Collins. Accenting the change from the major to minor third while soloing is another aspect of the jazz influence - that's one of the ways southwestern big bands, or "territory" bands, of the 1930s and 1940s used to cook up riffs to play behind a soloist.
