Find the Swing Groove! Part 2

Remember, rockabilly may only have three chords but the feel and groove of how you play those three chords is not nearly as simple as it may seem.

Rockabilly comes from a time in which music had a big swing feel which was necessary for the dancers who wished to "dance to the bop" and has a kind of hillbilly approach to playing swing that gives it its own special rhythm.

Once again, we'll do this in the key of E over standard 12-bar blues changes. The approach in this lesson is single 8th notes on low strings.
