The shuffle rhythm is built on an 8th note rhythmic feel. These notes are then subdivided into triplets.

To get the shuffle feel the 8th note alternate between long and short note values. The longer note fall on the beat while the short beat goes in between on the upbeat. Essentially the 8th note is played as a triple with the middle note not played. Another way to look at it is the first 2 notes of the triplet are tied together.

The shuffle beat is also called swing rhythm.

  • Songwriter Tip:

    The function of pay-off lines is to provide a sense of satisfaction and completion for the listener. The pay-off, most often found at the end of the chorus, is the line that ties the song together. It provides the emotional punch, or surprise, and adds impact to the lines that precede it.
