  • Hi guys, welcome to my first high resolution lesson here on GMC. This time we are going to do something happy and that is rockabilly style playing :)

    Progression can vary, but you can use rock and roll type of progression, involving I, IV, V chords, and add some more in breaks or bridges. Everything is allowed basically, as long it is happy and groovy :)

    With rockabilly style playing you can mix several different styles to create this groovy form of music! Blues, jazz and country licks are often used as a part of rockabilly soloing.To keep things simple, you can use C major pentatonics for country licks, anc C minor pentatonic fro bluesy licks. This is some form of generalized rule when it comes to playing these sorts of things, and I will try to show you how to use these different scales when playing this style.

    As far as technique goes, bending, alternate, economy picking are good thing to use. Hybrid picking and fingerpicking as well is used a lot in rockabilly, but since fingerpicking is a bit specific technique, I will leave it for another series. For now we will do some classic hybrid picking licks that you can use in various situations.

    Have fun with the lesson! :)
