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!

Hi John -- yes -- it's the play button on the upper right side of your screen.  We do it this way so you can be anywhere on the page and still control the backing track.  Enjoy!
