Really admire the rhythm playing on them and the effort that goes into coming up with great rhythm ideas. Thanks Brian, great lesson. Is there any chance that you could give a mini lesson on the blues riff in A sharp? Or at least a tip on the patterns? Another fun, inspiring lesson that keeps me loving my guitar!
Brian, you truly bring a huge amount of happiness to your students — so glad I found Active Melody! Cheers, Cary. New wrinkles on an old theme perhaps. Once again, you awake the latent excitement that I have always had for music; with your great teaching, I can enjoy learning a good piece and improvising off it.
Thanks so much! Many thanks Brian! The part after the walking base minute 16 with different rhythm, I did not understand. Too quick. Have You explained this in more detail elsewhere? I love these great upbeat solo songs , This is a great addition to my song list. Brian, I am curious why the long bass run climbs up the hill to the E note and then descends down a different set of similar, but different, notes.
Is there any logic or theory behind that? I would have guessed that it would retrace the path up. Thanks for another great lesson. Can you lead me to any of your like videos? I retired 3 years ago and found your site and bought in 2 years ago. Well worth the investment. Thanks Brian.

You should learn to play the boogie-woogie bassline over blues variation 1 first.
The Boogie-Woogie exercise. The two-bar boogie-woogie pattern neatly fits it since it contains two or four bars of each chord. It is important that you understand the concepts of chord extensions and rootless voicings.
Check out the related lessons above for more information. Rootless voicings allow you to move easily and smoothly between your right-hand chords whilst also incorporating interesting chord colours and textures. Next, experiment with moving your right-hand voicings up and down chromatically. Slipping the voicing up and down a half step will add additional tension, resolution, and interest to your right-hand comping patterns.
In boogie-woogie, many of the cliche licks and riffs are also based on chromatic movement, so this concept is an important one to understand. Start by moving voicings chromatically, and later in the course we will explore chromatic riff concepts and ideas. Learn the turnarounds demonstrated in this lesson.In this lesson we take a look at how to play an easy Boogie Woogie on the guitar by playing a typical Walking Bass with the thumb and offbeat-chords with the index finger. This lesson is in the style of ‘Step It Up And Go’ by Blind Boy Fuller, but off course it can be applied to a .
