Watch the Rip It Up online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 1-2-3 Rockabilly Guitar
Johnny Burnette and The Rock and Roll Trio were a ferocious band. They definitely represented a tougher side of rockabilly. This tune is based on one of their first singles released on Coral Records in 1956 and recorded in the Pythian Temple in New York City which is where Bill Haley and The Comets recorded. This tune featured Paul Burlison on guitar. There's a great Albert Lee cover that's worth checking out. This tune will have us combining Travis picking and boogie lines.
