Watch the E Rockabilly: Intro online guitar lesson by Johnny Hiland from Ten Gallon Guitar: Intros, Outros & Turnarounds

This is one of my favorite genres in the world, as my guitar hero was Danny Gatton. That being said, we have some other great other rockabilly cats like Brian Setzer. Danny was certainly my favorite - I loved his style, and I tried to emulate his playing in my own to this day.

One thing I'd like to point out before I start teaching this is where I came up with this kind of intro. What I'm hearing is the bass player in this track is moving downward. I did this on purpose, because I wanted to show you that when you hear a bass player do that, the first thing you should think to do as a guitar player is to move up. It creates a sense of unison, and eventually you'll hit each other to give the singer an opportunity a chance to get into the song.
