Watch the Lady Killer online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 1-2-3 Rockabilly Guitar
This Travis picking tune is based on one of my favorite rockabilly tunes. Although, not the most popular one. Still, it's a great tune that rockabilly fans will know. The tune was made famous by Joe Clay. He's someone who would be more of a name if he ever toured outside of New Orleans and didn't quit the music industry early on the be a school bus driver. He was a talented multi-instrumentalist who played guitar on a few Elvis recordings and even played drums for Elvis once when D.J. Fontana couldn't make a New Orleans gig. The tune was released in 1956. Great sounding echo on this one. Basically a 12 bar blues with Travis picking.
