Heavy Swing Blues Rhythms - Volume 1


Learn 5 blues guitar rhythms that have a heavy guitar-driven sound, and a swingin’ beat.


Overview

Heavy Swing Blues Rhythms - Volume 1

So Excited, Cold Shot and Change It from SRV, Born With A Broken Heart, Somehow, Somewhere, Someway by KWS… these songs all have a common thread. They have a heavy, guitar-driven rhythm with a swing beat.

That heavy swing rhythm feel is what you’ll learn in this course. I’ve created 5 rhythms in that style, each with a different sound. You’ll also learn some muting techniques necessary to play them cleanly.
