Jimmy Wyble was a great teacher, player, author, and influence on Cliff Gallup. Jimmy's playing in Bob Wills Texas Playboys was unmatched. His solos on "Roly Poly" and "Stay a Little Longer" are near perfect. His improvising is inspired by Django Reinhardt with a touch of fiddle ornamentation. He has also recorded with Barney Kessel, Benny Goodman and Red Norvo. As an educator, he has taught some real heavies to the likes of Howard Roberts, Steve Lukather, Howard Alden, and Smokey Hormel.
In this lick, Jimmy is playing over the Bob Wills' classic "Stay a Little Longer". The tune is built off of rhythm changes in G. Jimmy's approach is to stay completely diatonic and hint at the chord changes.
