Index of Left-hand Accompaniment Patterns

Boogie Blues Shuffle

This is by no means a comprehensive list of boogie, blues, and shuffle accompaniment patterns, but rather, simply a resource for teachers, students and performers. Feel free to adapt these patterns to fit your particular needs or playing style. Each pattern is shown only in C and often, the written octave was primarily chosen for readability. You will need to adjust the octave or transpose the pattern to fit the chords or the key of the music you are playing. Boogie on!
