Watch the Swingin' Gate online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Rhythm Factory: Texas Blues

I named this after Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown. Gatemouth played a lot of swing/shuffle type rhythms. The 9th chord is a classic swing voicing and I thought I'd add a little riff to round out the example. We're in the key of C which always seems to be a good key for this feel. I've played with a lot of horn groups in the past and they often play in C so, swing away with this one!
