Watch the Swing Lines online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 1-2-3 Rockabilly Guitar
Swing music was finding it's way into every form of music during it's popularity. Swing and Rock n Roll gave us Jump Swing. Swing and Country music gave us Western Swing. Rockabilly was not immune to it's influence. A swing lick has tendency to outline the notes of a chord more directly than say a blues lick. This style of lead guitar playing is a big part of Cliff Gallop's sound. You can hear all these licks echoed later in Brian Setzer's playing.
I'll teach you three swing licks. Each one will correspond with your I, IV and V chords.
