There aren’t many genres that can be defined by a single rhythm. Or a rhythm that immediately makes you think of a genre. One of the few exceptions is the shuffle feel and Blues.
There are many feels and rhythms in Blues music but none as synonymous as the shuffle feel. This feel is used in other styles of music but has its roots in Blues. I love it because it’s not as simple as it sounds. It’s a good challenge and will take your rhythm to the next level.
