Davell Crawford Lesson >

Baby Please Be True > Right Hand Rhythm

This is the second lesson of the original blues song Baby Please Be True. Last week we focused on the left-hand rhythmic pattern this week we are studying the right-hand accompaniment pattern with some variations thrown in.

Once you've got the left-hand pattern to a comfortable place, start messing around with the right hand. Remember to get the right hand comfortable before exploring variations. With the right-hand don't forget to start with simple triads. The more simplistic, the better in the beginning... So don't rush.

Also in this lesson we look at the use of the one and four chords in relation to each other... How they may be used as fill-ins.

Practice, practice, practice and give me a shout out if you have any questions.

Keep it simple at first and have fun.
