Changing The Feel

This lesson takes the basic pattern and simplifies it slightly by leaving out one of the offbeats.

The remaining offbeat between beats three and four is then "shuffled" to change the feel of the rhythm.

It is worth spending quite a lot of time getting this rhythmic feel to become second nature as a lot of the more bluesy exponents of this style use this as an underlying rhythm.
