Watch the Thin Man Rag online guitar lesson by Ray Nijenhuis from 50 Western Swing Licks You MUST Know
Improvisation is a key word in western swing, but many of the intros, interludes and outros were arrangements. Often these two and three part harmony sections were played by electric stringed instruments. Lapsteel and guitar for example, or with mandolin added. This lick is a two part harmony run for one guitar. Not easy to play as the chords change every two beats, but this sequence of double-stops is just too cool!
