I’ve been trying to get more rhythm into my slide playing and have been tinkering with the sort of rhythmic groove that Fred Mcdowell used in many of his songs. It combines some alternate picked base notes played with the thumb that are synchronized with a hammer-on and then a percussive mute. I spent a lot of time just getting the groove to work and then a lot of time trying to figure out how to fit into a song with other things I do. I think I’m making some progress and thought I’d post an example even if its got some rough edges. This isn’t meant to be a Fred M. song or even very much like one. I’m just stealing his groove. – Bret
