West Side Shuffle > Head Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Duke's most popular lessons with new sheet music, re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Duke: 

Hello Friends, this week we are going to learn the head to my "Westside Shuffle." It contains many of the blues guitar techniques that I have been teaching in other songs including slides, hammer-ons chordal answers to riffs, rhythmic chord syncopation, and bass line doubled riffs. It's influenced a bit by Freddie King's instrumental style with low string melody and stop time figures.

Next week we'll work on soloing so get the "head" down first and enjoy!
