Watch the Boogie-Woogie With online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Boogie-Woogie

Quite simply, this lesson demonstrates how to create a very effective variation of the typical boogie-woogie pattern by replacing the low root with a root one octave higher. This is a great way to "clean up" a guitar part so it won't clash with the bass. It also teaches you to see inverted passages on the fingerboard. As you play this form in the higher registers, you'll recognize some great two voice lead guitar licks. This is a great way to "clean up" a guitar part so it won't clash with the bass.
