Watch the One Bar Boogie Pattern online guitar lesson by Walter Broes from Rock, Billy, & Boogie Guidebook

If you're the only electric guitarist in a rockabilly setting, boogie patterns on guitar are something you'll be playing a lot of. Make sure to listen to some boogie-woogie piano for some inspiration! Blues and R&B players are another great source of inspiration, as well as country and honky tonk players.

From Lightnin’ Hopkins to Arthur “Guitar Boogie” Smith, there are too many examples to list, and listening to them will give you ideas for improvising your own boogie lines fairly quickly.
