Today’s lesson features a time-honored technique for blues fingerstyle playing that is equally at home on the electric or acoustic guitar, but perhaps most at home on the acoustic. It evokes the great blues styles of folks like Robert Johnson, Skip James, Brownie McGhee and many others.

We all know how useful the “5th fret is equal to the next open string” thing is, but what about the open string being equal to the next string at the 7th fret? Well, that’s what this lesson is all about; those cool octaves that can be created in this way.

This great and influential lick utilizes the “claw” or hybrid-picking style to its fullest. Often associated with tunes like “My Baby Left Me,” “See See Rider” and, of course, “Mystery Train,” this lick has kicked off more jams than probably any other rhythm part in history.

The Harmony Shuffle requires quite a bit more left-hand dexterity and coordination to accomplish over ordinary shuffles, but once you master them they become a great tool. I have long been a fan of these types of positions, and you will find them to be quite invaluable in many applications as well.

This is a classic variation on the kind of Blues guitar and bass unison lines that became so popular as the result of the great Chicago blues players. I’ve personally been playing this lick for years, even recording “Treat Her Right” on my second LP, Hot Pickups. If you listen carefully to the original recording by Roy Head and The Traits there are actually two guitars playing on this part. We’re going to be playing it as one part, homogenized together.
