Bakerfield Shuffle - Overview is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from 1-2-3 Country.
Bakersfield Shuffle is a country shuffle that incorporates a common chord substitution. The major II-V is found in countless country tunes. This is going to force us out of position on the guitar neck. This is going to present a choice as a soloist. When we get to the II chord, which is D in the key of C, we have the option to solo using the C chord shape or the A chord shape. You can alternate between the two if you want.
