Again, this is just a basic 1, 4, 5 progression, but a nice platform on which to try some of our concepts. The right hand is doing a lot of work here, so make sure and get the basic pulse down before you tackle some of the other ideas. The voicings I used can all be interchanged but pay attention to the voice leading I used with the 9th chords. After a while, I switch up to more of a broken chord, rockabilly feel, that I like to do a lot. (This idea can be used in many types of music.) Note the way I used the top three strings and slid into the 7th chord as well.
