Watch the Patio Boogaloo online guitar lesson by Jimmy Reiter from Soul Guitar Guidebook
This funky groove, often heard in soul and R&B music, is called a boogaloo. This example will give you a few ideas for using double stops and the Mixolydian scale to play a solo that's a bit more interesting than a conventional minor pentatonic solo. Check out Magic Sam's "You Belong To Me" or "Shotgun" by Jr. Walker & The All Stars for great examples of this kind of groove.
In this video, we'll break down the first part of my performance of "Patio Boogaloo".
