Watch the Slapback Echo Shuffle 1 online guitar lesson by Ray Nijenhuis from Rockin' Rhythm Guitar Guidebook

Rick Parfitt is famous for his very specific way of playing a shuffle. As I'm sure you all know, a shuffle is basically a three note pattern, called a triplet, of which you don't play the one in the middle. Rick though, plays all three beats of the triplet. Well, he doesn't really play all three of them. He hits the string on the first note of the triplet, then slaps the string on second and then plays the string on the third note of the triplet.
