Hi Everyone -
This week’s lesson in in my “Buffle Off To Shufallo” study song is a continuation of the harmonica rhythm part backing up the guitar solo. For this section, we play the actual backwards “Box” pattern as rhythm accompaniment for most of this chorus. Again, not only is it good to be working more on your rhythm chops (you may be thinking does it ever end??)…but this will also give you an essential rhythm pattern that you should know if you play a lot of blues. The Box (or backwards Box) pattern is used so much in blues and rock & roll, and surely you will recognize the note pattern used here.
So don’t forget to keep using your new best friend - the metronome - in your practice time and keep Buffling!!
