Watch the You Don't Have To Boogie online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Rhythm Factory: Texas Blues
When the tempo is fast and we're physically and mentally tired of playing a rock n' roll style groove, we can opt for something like this. This sparse rhythmic idea will work well when the rest of the band is chugging along at this tempo. Rhythmic counterpoint is essential in all music. It keeps things interesting and won't bore the listener. What's nice about this idea is that we're also implying chord changes without playing full chord shapes. Give it a shot.
