Watch the New Orleans Groove online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Rock Guitar 8: Advanced Rhythm Principles

New Orleans Groove - Concept 3 is a video guitar lesson presented by Shane Theriot and is sourced from Rhythm Mojo.


This rhythm is based on a 3/2 clave pattern. It's found in a lot of New Orleans traditional groove songs such as 'Iko Iko' and 'Hey Pocky Way' by the Neville Brothers. A simple but effective rhythm that has a hypnotic feel to it - we'll start out basic and I'll show you some variations on the chord shape.
