Introduction to the Texas Shuffle

Post by mamboman » April 11th, 2006, 7:00 am

Hi all,

In the lesson 'Introduction to the Texas Shuffle By Kevin Rhys' there is the TAB shown below. I find the way the TAB has been written poor and can't work out which beats the notes are supposed to played on. Does anyone have any idea and can help me by re-writing it with the beats below the notes? Thanks

e ----3--------------------------
B ----3--------------------------
G ---(4)--------------------------
D ---(3)--------------------------
A (x)-(x)----------5-------7------
E 3-------6---7------------------
| / | / | / |
(t) ^

key:
| = qtr note beat(1,2,3,4 - got it?)
/ = upbeat (the "and" in "1 and 2 and 3 and 4" - got it?)
(t) = thumb
(x) = muted or not played - yer preference
(#) = optional (# = integer = uh, that's a number, right?)
^ = upstroke chop

Thanks, I'll try it tonight. I'm always on the look out for new ways to jam against the blue progression.
