Elixir Strings artist Patrick Wieland breaks down the blues shuffle into a few easy-to-play parts and shows you how to put everything together to get swinging in this quick electric tip. It’s a great, fun feel to play and by varying the way you hit the strings, it can be super “Texas Blues” style or adapted to much lighter funk situations too.
“Elixir Strings deliver what I need. Crisp tone, tuning stability and best of all, they seem to last forever.” Patrick Wieland
The funky groove of the shuffle is an essential part of any blues player’s rhythmic toolbox. From T-Bone Walker to Stevie Ray Vaughan and beyond, the distinctive feel has cropped up in the work of the greats throughout the history of the blues.
