Blues Rhythms: A Cool Rhythm Riff

Rhythm isn't only about playing chords, in fact, it is very common to use rhythm riffs as the background rhythm section for songs too! In this lesson, we'll look at how you can use the pentatonic minor scale to play a fun rhythm riff in the context of a 12 bar blues.

im a bass player at heart trying to learn more rhythm and blues. Sounds like a good jam. Could you go into a little Rythmn for 24 bars then a small riff down on 1 & 2? I think I’d like to jam with this. Thanks again

Rhythm is inherient in our bodies, we all breath right? To learn how to use the rhythm chords and play off of them has always been my best trait. Looking forward to new ideas! Johnne

    You got it John – in fact, most of the great rhythms are somehow fractioned off the human heart beat.
