Watch the Fat Man and Little Boy online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 50 Rockabilly Licks You MUST Know

A great way to be frugal with any lick that you know, is to change the octaves. You’ll end up with a set of phrases that go great together, because they’re the same thing an octave apart but it's different enough that the listener won't be able to tell. This is a chromatic run that outlines an arpeggio in the style of Charlie Christian, Benny Goodman’s guitar player. Charlie Christian's lines are always embellishing common chord shapes.
