Rockabilly Blues – Part 1 of 3

The Rockabilly Blues that I have written the Guitar Tab and Music Notation for is the first of a series of three.  Once you get this one worked out play it fast but make sure it is in time.  It will roll off your fingers in no time. 

It’s important as a guitar player to be able to play lots of variations of simple riffs over common chord patterns.  By doing this it wil help you become a strong improviser and after some time it will be easy to go from guitar accompaniment directly into a solo in a seamless manner.  Often as a guitar player you’ll find yourself in a situation where thee are a number of guitar players playing at once. Someone is always going to go for the straight rhythm guitar and sure enough, a few others will want to solo over the top of everything.  So the ability to be able to play melodic parts to accompany a piece of music is very useful and a lot of other players often won’t even consider doing it. 

Parts two and three will be a little more complex. I will upload these within the next couple of days, come back and give them a try.
