: : That's because you're not doing it right. You must remember that the blues rhythm has shuffled eighth notes. When you play it that way it sounds bluesy.
: Thanks a lot Shaggy, I did not know that. Next time I will do Hoo-la's instead of Hoo-la-la's. in the hopes that it sounds better. Thanks for your input. I guess you do learn something new everyday. Blues = shuffled eight. Thanks again.
Try this instead. Play the "hoo" as a quarter note. Then play the "la-la" as 2 shuffled eighth notes. This makes quite a bluesy sounding riff.
