THE JAZZ SHUFFLE

   

In this lesson we will look at the jazz shuffle. The jazz shuffle extends nicely on top of the basic jazz ride pattern we looked at in the last lesson..

From here we can start adding in some snare notes with the LH hand to get more of a shuffle groove. Let's start by adding beat 2 and 4 on the snare..

Next let's add the triplet prior to beats 2 and 4, that is the 3rd triplet of both beats 1 and 3..

Next we'll add the 3rd triplet of beats 2 and 4 also..
