This is called the Rhumba Blues, it is a lot like the other ones except we are going to just give it a little spice, make a little difference. There going to be that 12-chord pattern but it is just going to be a little bit different. Let me explain how to do it first, we will start with an A chord (guitar playing), the 5th string open and the 4th string 2nd fret. We are going to do a hammer-on on the 5th string from the 3rd fret to the 4th fret (guitar playing), after we do the hammer on (guitar playing) 4th string 2nd fret and then finally a pull off from the 4th fret to the 2nd fret at the 4th string. Let me do this really slow as a whole and then I will loop it until you can get the vibe how it sounds. 1. Just a caudal (guitar playing). Hammer on (guitar playing), and note by itself (guitar playing) and finally the pull off from four to two on the 4th string. So real slow, sound like (guitar playing). We are going to move to the D, same thing, we are just going to move it down one string. In other words we are going to be using 4th string and 5th string (guitar playing), back to the A, now to the E which is going to be same thing except involving the 6th string and the 5th string (guitar playing), back to the D, A, and finally the E the complete the loop of 12-chord pattern (guitar playing). Okay, let us try this with the band. Once again, you got a chance to play along and here it is how it is supposed to sound with the band, wind it up (band playing).
