Blues Guitar - A shuffle solo

The next arrangement is Betty Blues. The main lick is a shuffle on 2nd and 3rd string.

It is a very useful lick, and you will often hear it in rockabilly music. Look at it as part of an A chord and part of a D-chord, or as part of D7 and A(7). If you play the A7-fragment on 3rd and 4t string, and then the D at the same string, you get the main positions for The Beatles' Doctor Robert

Over the D-chord, you just move the whole lick up 5 frets. And you will se from the tab that you slide the lick down at the end of each bar.
A D A7 D7

In bar 10 there is a sequence of chords instead of just the D7 chord. It is some kind of a "pre-turnaround". The chords are Adim7, D7, F7 and then Adim7 one more time. Note that you do not move the 3rd and 4th finger through the changes.

Just for confusion: The dim7 is a symmetric chord. It is a minor third between the notes, no matter what you choose as root. So the same chord can be labeled Cdim7, D#dim7 or Adim7.

If you find it too difficult, just play the D7

Adim7 D7 F7
