Now here's a change of pace. This example might sound very familiar to you in a rock&roll context, but it is a style that is also extremely common in contry playing. It's called a harmony shuffle. A shuffle feel is the kind of rhythm that you hear in so many classic Chuck Berry songs of the 1950's. It's called a harmony shuffle because we're playing two notes together in harmony.You can also hear this style in the playing of country giants like Scotty Moore and Jimmy Reed.
