Today’s Mandolin Blues Lick of the Day focuses on an interesting double stop shuffle pattern derived from the playing of Jimmie Vaughan, Anson Funderburgh, and Texas-based or inspired guitarists. Instead of the pattern that typically has the shuffling back and forth between a double stop that is root and fifth of triad (in key of G, G on bottom with D on top) and then root and sixth (in Key of G, G on bottom with E on top). I know that’s clear as mud but is demonstrated at very beginning of accompanying video. This shuffle uses a double stop that is root and third (G and B) and shuffles to root and fourth (G and C). It’s sort of going back and forth between G and C for the I chord, and then C and F for the IV chord, and D and G for the V chord.
