Today I am going to show you a neat little trick you can use when you practice.

“Today I am going to show you a neat little trick you can use when you practice,” says Darville, “this is going to combine the rhythm with the soloing, this is something that takes a while to master, but once you do master it you can keep going from now to Christmas with it”. Jacques uses the riff from Hoochie Coochie Man, by Muddy Waters to demonstrate this concept. Darville demonstrates the riff for this as follows; slide into the 3rd fret of the 5th string with 2nd finger, 4th string open to 2nd fret with first finger, 3rd fret of the 5th string with 2nd finger and open 5th string, counted as 1 2 & 3 4. Each time after you play the riff Darville says you simple play a lick that takes up the same amount of time and then repeat the riff again and continue this process to work on various licks. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy blues guitar lesson at
