Watch the Sound the Trumpets online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 50 Rockabilly Licks You MUST Know

This is a lick we’re going to be imitating a trumpet section of a big band, and we’re going to be doing that with the help of a Bigsby. What I like about the Bigsby is even though it may be a very subtle tremolo system, it can still be used to do big dips. This allows us to bend a whole chord down or up a half step. It's not going to ever be perfectly in tune but that's okay. It's just an effect and the pitchy-ness is part of why this sounds cool.
