Watch the Brian Setzer 1 online guitar lesson by Matthieu Brandt from Jump Blues
Although Brian Setzer's stompin' ground is Rockabilly, he's played some very hot jump blues since he started the Brian Setzer Orchestra in the mid nineties.
It turns out that most Rockabilly licks can be played in a jump blues setting. They are two branches of the same tree.
By incorporating typical Rockabilly riffs and tricks he's definitely added his own slant on jump.
The solos contain the use of open strings, sixth intervals, full chords in a stop chorus, diminished runs and augmented chords. A full bag of beans.
