Jimmy Rogers, Eddie Taylor - nuff said! Forget the rest, go with the best.


I fully agree.
Not to mention his work with Jimmy Reed, IMHO the rhythmn parts in Eddie Taylor's "Bad Boy" album are superb

Another thing to consider is picking up a book of snare drum rudiments or drum grooves. May sound strange...


Absolutely not strange, few times ago I listened on TV a guy (I presume someone like a session man) sayin' the most important background he had was the year he spent behind a drum kit before starting playing guitar, more than lessons and exercise on the guitar...

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll search something very basic.

Also, IMO, it's important to realize that certain types of rhythms can inherently cause one to want to speed up, or slow down. For example, upbeat vamps will inherently tempt you to race, while some shuffles can try to slow down, esp. if you're using partial chords followed by a 4th beat lick ( ala SRV,Hendrix, or any blues trio stuff.). (disclaimer: I'm a harper/keyboarder. :lol: )

Listen to a lot of blues. .... Spend an hour a day playing rhythm guitar by ear to everything that comes up. Start with playing chords against the song. Then start playing parts of chords. Start doing double stops, then start playing single line riffs. When I play in the context of a band, I always try to stay out of the way of everyone else. Player higher up the neck, or lower. Let the bass have their part, don't double it, compliment it.


Thanks for this learning progression, I like your idea to start with chords and gradually remove notes... someone already said "less is more", and I fully agree.
Bye. Alf
