Watch the Rockabilly & The Blues online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Rockabilly Survival Guide: Lead

Countless rockabilly tunes are based on blues tunes. A large portion of Elvis's sun catalog are covers of blues tunes. In addition to learning the blues scale we will take a look at some ways that rockabilly used the blues. One of the most powerful use of the blues scale is by Paul Burlison with Johnny Burnette. Paul would by the blues scale in octaves by fretting both the low and high E string. This gives us two notes that are two octaves apart.
