Watch the Spanky online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Rhythm Factory: Texas Blues

If you've studied my course 50 Blues Rhythms You Must Know, you'll notice that I explain this type of rhythm in detail. One of the points I like to make is that this rhythm sounds cool when you refrain from putting the root note on the bottom. This example is in G and is based around a power chord with the 5th of the chord in the bottom. The staccato attack is important to make this example what I call - Spanky!
