    Here is a basic blues shuffle in G that might be good for a new player to give a shot. It's a mid-tempo shuffle in G. It's only bass and drums, so it's a good way to learn to listen to the bass and drums for the changes or to build your own organic clock of where the changes take place in a standard 12 bar blues.

    Nope. That's a found track. I especially look for bass & drum only tracks. There's no place to hide on them and my shortcomings become very obvious when I'm using them for practice.

    well here I am talking to myself again :rolleyes:

    I had the mind, and the opportunity, to reconsider. I have sent in a more appropriate replacement for the prior stand-in. Here is the Elite with a lil snarl.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ofbziig9zenidtz/bass-ic blues3.mp3?dl=0

    This replaces the one above, my intention at least. And just so I don't mess anyone up I ended at the same place, just a quarter thump after 6:18.

    I still think you guys did real nice up there:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:, except for the guy with the wood box:D.
