Watch the Straight 8th "Heartbeat" online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Boogie-Woogie
This lesson presents movable forms of the boogie-woogie rooted off the 6th string and the 5th string. Staccato, palm mute, and left hand dampening are applied as well as the "heartbeat" effect. The video will address all aspects of technique to clearly help you clean up any rough spots in your playing. The movable forms of the boogie-woogie enable you to play in any key. They are great stretching exercises as you move down the neck so you can get some practice mileage out of them.
