Blues & Boogie Woogie School: Comping Pattern #2

Posted by

Second in the series… a bouncy, two-fisted groove that works great at medium to fast tempos… walking bass in straight time while your right hand plays the chords on all in-between all the in-between beats in shuffle rhythm…

Don’t forget to shuffle the eighth notes!

Study-Practice Notes…

  • Technique: Never throw your hands at the keys. Use a prepared attack and let gravity drop the weight of your arms/hands/fingers into each chord with just enough support to keep your hands and fingers from collapsing.
  • Don’t try to count the time. Feel the groove!

Watch on YouTube!
