Blues School: Comping Pattern #3


Walking bass in the left hand and a syncopated two-bar pattern in the right hand…

And 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 do the work by dropping the weight of your arms/hands/fingers into each chord with just enough support to keep your hands and fingers from collapsing.
  • Pay attention to the rests!
  • No flams between the left and right hands!
