Lesson notes

This is Part 4 of a five-part series on the blues shuffle groove. Make sure to check out Parts 1-3 for the fundamentals involved. In this lesson we’re going to use our Part 2 harmony as the foundation for our basic groove, while adding a third chord to the right-hand pattern that creates a bit more voice-leading motion. At the end of the form we’ll learn a new turnaround that uses a descending harmonic sequence rather than an ascending pattern, and a new ending that approaches the I chord from below rather than above.
