In today’s lesson we’ll talk about how to get that Texas-style “chunk” out of your blues rhythms.

Also, we’ll talk about where a lot of those different classic riffs in the style of SRV and Kenny Wayne Shepherd (and that Griff Hamlin guy) come from.

Grab your guitar and let’s get going:

      Hi Griff enjoyed the video just wanted to know while you are playing that style can you break from it and play small solo licks also. Ken

      Hi Griff.

      Thank you for another great lesson.

      On the rhythmic subdivision aspect of the Texas shuffle, – what about feeling it in sixteenth notes, but only playing the first and FOURTH of each grouping of sixteenths, as opposed to the first and THIRD of eighth note triplets? It’s a subtle difference, but to me it gives it more of that Texas swagger.

      Not trying to be a smartass here, – I have nothing but respect for your teaching.

      Thank you again.
      Regards
      Karl
