Here’s a bonus lesson, not directly related to Mary Had a Little Lamb, but supplemental and helpful all the same. Adding some triplet and shuffle patterns to your rhythm is a great way to spice up your guitar playing and break away from more regular and even strumming patterns. It will be important to starting counting these rhythms correctly from the start.
In this first section we’ll take a look at the scale we’re using for the riffs, talk about the chromatic passing notes – the so-called “blues” notes! – and also take a look at the chords and various ways of playing those. Don’t skip this part, as it is important foundation for the rest of the song!
