From the recording Every Groove A Bluesman Needs To Know
Texas shuffle in G
Here we have another classic sound and feel. The drummer is shuffling 8th notes on the snare and ride symbol like so many blues grooves. The bass drum thumps all the downbeats. One-two-three-four, also called the quarter notes. In this type of shuffle the bass guitar is commonly more free to walk around. Guitar slingers like Freddy King, Johnny Winter and Stevie Ray Vaughan used this style often and that's probably how the name Texas Shuffle came to be. Some samples are Stevie Ray’s “Honey Bee” and “Tell Me” or Freddy King’s “The Stumble” and “I’m Tore Down”.
