Basic Blues Shuffle

OK all you beginners out there, this is the absolute simplest way to start playing the blues. There's a couple of little touches added in to play around with, but even the turnaround at the end is played off your basic B7 chord. Funny thing is, if you've got a good enough voice, most people (guitarists aside) don't even notice if you just play this little shuffle for half the songs you play. Flip to the next page to see another way to play the shuffle that is equally simple but slightly different.
