Watch the Boogie online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 1-2-3 Rockabilly Guitar

A boogie is style of blues piano that originated in Marshall, Texas in the 1930's. It was hugely popular and had a great influence on hillbilly music. The Delmore Brothers and Johnny Barfield were among some of the first hillbilly acts to embrace the boogie. Tunes like "Hillbilly Boogie" and "Freight Train Boogie" were some of the first tunes to marry boogie music with country music. Roy Milton's "Milton"s Boogie" was also influential and lays down a bass line that was a template for many great rockabilly tunes. I'll teach you this classic and surprisingly simple boogie line.
