Watch the Junk Yard Dog online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 1-2-3 Rockabilly Guitar
This is a basic 12 bar blues based on a rockabilly classic written by the famous songwriting team of Lieber and Stoller. These guys were responsible for tons of great songs that have earned there place in the American song book. It was originally recorded by Willie Mae "Big Mama" Thorton in 1952 and re-record by Elvis in 1956. The Elvis version is the one we're all probably most familiar with and is the version we're learning here. This is definitely a standard in the rockabilly world.
