Blues School: Comping Pattern #2


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.


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.
  • Rhythm: Don’t try to count the time in your head. Feel the groove in your body!
