Rockabilly Blues Riff Part 3 of 3

I’ve writen this three part Rockabilly Blues Riff because as a long term musician/ teacher and student of the guitar, I know it’s easier to be focused on developing our skills when have some short term outcomes to reach.  If we work on just one thing it’s easy to forget it fast, but when we have a few things that are similar there’s more chance of being self discipled enough to commit to doing a small series of guitar exercises. 

So here’s the 3rd part, it’s a 20 bar blues, yes sounds like a mad idea, you’ll see why it’s 20 bars, it works nicely.   In the breaks where there’s rests, eventually you could put in some nice guitar fills, but sort out the main riffs first.

Rockabilly Blues Riff for Guitar in G

Blues Rockabilly Riff, I wrote this a few minutes ago.  I was thinking a little about Flatt and Scruggs the great Bluegrass players and I picked up the nearest guitar that I could find, which happened to be my semi-acoustic Ibanez 105N, pictured below.

Ibanez Artcore 105N

I was going to write a Bluegrass type of tune and the following came out instead, it’s sort of a rockabilly riff I guess, a litle like ‘Your Mamma Don’t Dance’ by Loggins and Messina.  It’s what I call a ‘Three Chord Wonder’, a tune with three chords only but a valid piece of music. 

You could play it slow, fast, Electric, Acoustic, Swing…whatever. So long as it is IN TIME.  Start slow and gradually get your speed up.  So many players are in a hurry to play fast, it’ll come.
