Watch the Rockabilly Style Techniques online guitar lesson by Johnny Hiland from Ten Gallon Guitar: Rhythm

Let's delve into some rockabilly guitar! Danny Gatton, my guitar hero, was a massive rockabilly guy and turned me on to this style. We'll look at how to get all parts of rockabilly into your rhythm playing, including setting the delay and chords patterns to play to get the sound.

This style is very similar to fingerstyle and chickin pickin' playing, with a percussive bass part played on top and the melody being played on the bottom. Make sure to get your delay set so it really delivers a punch with every note!
