Blues Shuffle > Both Hands with Variations

This week we are still working with the song, 'Baby What You Want Me To Do', by Jimmy Reed. The first week we covered the left hand and the second week, the right hand accompaniment.

In this 3rd lesson, we will work on 3 different left hand baseline variations. This lesson also dabs with several different fingering exercises or patterns if you will. You will learn alternate fingering for the left hand blues patterns taught to you in the two past lessons.

Another very important point in this lesson is where we start to deal with arm movement; from elbow to fingers.

Lastly, for those of you guys that are moving at a faster pace, you guys can concentrate on a few different walk ups to the 1, 4, 5 chords used in the this song. I play a few for you in this lesson. If you'd like to get creative and show me what you're thinking or coming up with (only after your mastered left have and right hand from lessons 1 & 2) feel free to post your video.

Remember to practice both hands. Study lessons 1 & 2. If you have any questions or comments, please send them to me and I'll be happy to help you out!

Thank you very much and I'll see you next week.

Bonne musique...et ils sont partis!!!

Hi again

I thought I had it, but I still cannot get the turnaround right. Is it explained somewhere on your site, or played in a speed so I can follow, because even on half speed I cant get it right.

Maybe this site is just to advanced for me.

Hi again

I just found out that you can play the video in slow speed and I got the intro and the turnaround right! 

By the way: You are a great singer, and it makes the whole learning proces so much easyer and inspiring when you sing on the video. Thank you.

Best

Hi Carsten! I'm happy that you found the 'slow down' feature. Please post here so that I may help you further. Certainly you can use your phone to video and post here. 

Let me know if I can be of any help and thanks for the compliment about the singing!

Hi Davell

Just like Eric I get lost when it comes to the turnaround and alså the intro. I got the fundamentals. But if I want to play the hold song I really miss the other parts 

I am new here and maybe  lessons  'turn arounds/walk-ups and cadances. are somewhere else ?

Hi Davell:

Yeah, the turn around. That's it. Sorry if I got ahead of things. I look forward to those lessons. Right now, I have alot to work on.

Thanks, Davell

Okay Davell:

I'm with you on getting the chords together, the F, B-flat and C and their progressions between each other. I understand (slightly) playing the fourth of the fourth. Both left and right hands are become somewhat coordinated with each other. And I've got playing the lick. 

But, here's the question. What are you doing at 1:04, and even better clarified at 1:30 - what progression is that? - that's where there's thunder coming from your left hand, and those fingers are moving like lightning (too fast for me to tell what is going on, even at 50%). Is this some type of breakdown on the F chord itself? Or a varied approach to playing the F, B-flat and C? I can see you're starting this transition back to I, and you're octaving up on the C and the F, but I'm at sea on this thing.

You're doing a great job teaching. Your feedback is appreciated. 

Best,

Eric

Hi Eric!

I believe you're asking about what some would call, 'the turn around'. I didn't focus much on the turn aroundduring this lesson. These first lessons are designed mostly to build strength in the left hand and a decent and consistant coordination between both the left and right hands. I plan to circle back and feature a specific lesson or two on, 'turn arounds/walk-ups and cadances. 

In the meantime, post a video of what you've been working on and I'll help you fill in the gaps!
