West Side Shuffle > Rhythm 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, The tune for this month is my "Westside Shuffle" that I recorded with Ronnie Earl for our "The Duke Meets The Earl" album. It's a nice simple westside shuffle as the title implies. I recorded a track for this one where I solo for two choruses then leave two open for you! Then we trade 4 bar sections for two choruses before going back to the theme. So this first lesson is again, with the chords and different voicings and rhythmic ideas for different parts of the tune. So pick up on the chords and have fun jamming with me and next week we'll learn the head then on to soloing.
