Learn How To Play Blues Shuffle Beats

This free drum lesson covers six popular blues shuffle beats. They are all based around eighth note triplets, and should be played with a laid-back feel. The first four have the pulse on two and four, while the last two are in a half-time feel (with the pulse on the three count). Watch the included video for more information.
