Thousands of blues tunes draw on the core foundation of grooves and rhythm patterns spawned during the electric blues renaissance of the 50s and 60s. Unlike other genres of music from that time, there’s nothing nostalgic about these grooves — these same grooves and rhythm patterns have been used by every generation of blues player since right up to modern times. “Authentic” is the best way to describe them and Jeff McErlain’s 30 Authentic Blues Grooves You MUST Know is the best way to learn them.

Good news for you. Guitarists already have a bit of an edge when it comes to learning the style because it's arpeggio-based and those arpeggios lie right inside the moveable chords you likely already know. Once you know your 4-note arps, you only need to learn how to integrate three remaining notes in that chord's scale (with a dash of chromatics of course). So, guitarists get a head start.
