In principle all turnaround licks can be used as fill-in licks. But some sounds better at the end of a verse, some sounds better at the end of the first or second line. Your ear decide what to choose.

You can of course combine the shuffle with fill-ins. The example show one way to break up the monotony of the shuffle. It is loosely based on a Robert Johnson's classic, «Ramblin' on my mind», made famous by Eric Clapton's recordings.

Other examples are Eric Clapton's recordings of Before You Accuse Me and Malted Milk/B> on his Unplugged album. Malted Milk is on of many Robert Johnson classics recorded by Eric Clapton's. The most famous of Robert Johnson's shuffle recordings is probably Sweet Home Chicago. Follow this link for more material on Robert Johnson's playing.

If you think we are going too fast, and in particular want some more material for listening and getting the sounds, I suggest that you get a book/CD set or a video with such material. Go to Recommended Books for Beginning Blues Gutiar to get some suggestions.
