In this lesson I'm going to teach you a classic blues riff or rhythm part, and show you how it morphed into what we today know as early rock 'n' roll. This includes a stripped down version of our rock 'n' roll A chord, a one-finger embellishment and a really common rhythmic concept called "swung eight notes".
