Rick Estrin

Lesson >

Chicago Shuffle

Verse 1 Breakdown - V Chord

We're re-issuing one of Rick's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Rick:   

In this lesson, I depart from my usual focus on groove (trust me, it's still in there) and actually show you a "lick"! More importantly, I'll show you little nuances to make that lick effective.



Note: We're trying something new in this lesson - a visual practice loop where you can see the pitch and all the detail of Rick's phrasing and bends.  Please let us know what you think.
