Watch the Intervallic Traveling online guitar lesson by Matthieu Brandt from 50 Jump Blues Licks You MUST Know

One of the great features of jump blues is that backup parts can get awfully close to sounding like full blown solos. Especially when these supporting guitar parts use intervals, thirds and sixths being the favorites, within the jump blues style. Played at low volume these parts create a thick accompaniment for a soloist or vocalist to lean on. But played loud and with attitude, they can form the climax of your solo.
