The boogie riff – also known as the shuffle riff – is a very popular and versatile move to add to your repertoire. And what’s more is that its pretty easy to play, as it only requires moving fingers across two notes. The boogie riff is mainly associated with blues, but it can be incorporated and adapted to all sorts of styles.
A good place to start with the boogie riff is with the low E string, as it will be played open, but you can also pick it up from the open A and D strings with the same shape, as well as move it up and down the fretboard.
