Let's learn how to play the melody to the T-Bone Shuffle by T-Bone Walker on guitar. I posted the rhythm guitar parts lesson here a few days back here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_x9-DeBfDo
After I posted this video a lot of you were sending me requests and commenting asking me to cover the melody part to this song, so here it is just for you. I would recommend working through both of these lessons and adding this song to your blues guitar repertoire. It's a classic from an original pillar of blues guitar.
The main melody to this song is just a short phrase that gets edited to fit the chords of our standard blues progression. I'll break it down for you note-for-note so you can understand the theory behind why this works and then go and play it right along with the original T-Bone Walker recording. Let's break it down!
