Basic stop-time blues
This is another stop-time pattern that you hear quite often. It is shown here in the key of A. If you're playing this acoustic, as I do, you really need to pop those A and D strings when you're playing that little 4-note riff, 'cause you don't want it to come out sounding wimpy!
Note the transition from stop-time into a blues shuffle for the refrain starting in measure 9. Also note that this should be a 16-bar blues (not 17), where measure 17 should be combined with measure 1 after the first time you play it, but I don't know how to do this in WholeNote's composer yet.
I use this one for "Hoochie Coochie Man". The next page shows another stop-time pattern which is used in a 12-bar blues progression.
