Back to the original topic

I agree with starting with Scotty Moore and Cliff Gallup. I think if you can learn most of Scotty Moore's rhythm techniques (not to slight his great lead playin) and really learn some of Cliff Gallup's technique's you will on pretty square ground. It is amazing how much of the rockabilly standard licks came from just these two.

In my opinion when it comes to bang for the buck the best two rockabilly books:

Fred Sokolow's Rockabilly guitar
Wolf Marshall's Guitars of Elvis


Video's would be (also on Truefire)

Jason Loughlin's 50 rockabilly licks you must know

He is reportedly coming out with an introduction to rockabilly would should be great as he is an incredible teacher.

This is a good primer if you want something free

http://truefire.com/blog/guitar-less...kabilly-licks/

Also this is really good and fairly cheap has several Cliff Gallup and Grady Martin tab's. There are a few errors in the tab but in general he really does a great job of interpreting the hard to decipher Cliff Gallup solo's.

And here's a bit of a Scotty Moore picking lesson from my blog

Im a beginner myself and i learned to fingerpick from a rockabilly player i suggest you to start with your thumb only and very very slowly.. If you have that under control start using your other fingers (middle+ring fingers) again slowly.. Now some say its important to use yourring and middle finger on the right time its true then you sound like chet atkins some say doesnt matter play the bass notes with your thumb and hit the other strings with your middle and ring finger at random then you sound dirty rockabilly. Btw You will get speed over time dont haste things and start slowly its important! Mystery train is another technique with pulling 2 strings together.. There are allot of diffrent fingerpicks so start with travis picking. Then theres a whole other thing to understand to become a O.K rockabilly player and im still learning this stuff aswell: try and learn to move your chords like you do with barre chords you move the basic E chord futher up the neck and make it an F or A or G etc.. Chord now take the basic D chord move it up 2frets now you got an E chord do the same with all the other basic chords this is basicly called the CAGED system learn these chords in every position then you can break those chords apart and use all the notes in your solo but move with the chords in the solo if the song goes from E to A do the same in your solo.. Dont stay in the pentatonic like blues rockabillyis allot in major you can achieve major tones if u use notes from chords. After that use ghost notes those notes next to the notes from the chord for exampe slide or hammer from a ghost note into the note from your chord or walk over them there are so many possibilitys! Then you can also use some double stops and learn your triads that means 3note chords that come from your caged system moved chords basicly you just play 3 notes from the whole chord. To play rockabilly its more important to solo out of broken down chords instead of solo in scales !!! Playing rockabilly is harder then people think haha. Im playing 4 years now im just a beginner in theorie i think i know allot but i cant really link all this together thats my problem.. Correct me if im wrong guys!!
Sorry im from the netherlands so i dont speak english very well ! Hope this helped you

+1 Deke. I think he writes for magazines a bit and is a big Mosrite fan like Joe Maphis and Larry Collins. Wonderful guitarist. I find it easier to listen intently and watch videos and copy the styles than watch lessons but there are some good lesson videos out there. Not Setzer's though. They're not so much lessons. More show and tell!

The other thread on Jason Loughlin made me think back to this thread. David Blacker's West Coast Blues from Truefire is not a rockabilly course but this stuff is fairly similar to rockabilly and I think if you want to learn more about the swing side of rockabilly this course is pretty helpful. It's has really helped me alot. He is an amazing teacher and in my opinion the best teacher on Truefire and that is saying quite alot.

sorry to say this but this dvd is more for advanced players.
the players only show some advanced tricks to get you even better at rockabilly guitar.

the OP says he wants to get better at playing rockabilly
lets start with asking what he CAN play and what he CAN'T play ?
and go on from there is in my opinion the best solution for this kind of problem.

What im trying to say is if you dont know the basic theory then its hard to figure out where to start with rockabilly and if that is the same problem the OP has then we should give him other advice and tips instead of only posting advanced videos etc. Ofcourse every piece of video, cd or book is a good thing to have and look at. But i mean theres more then just copy stuff from other players cause if you don't know the basics you never learn to play correctly thats what i experience in my journy to play rockabilly :-)

I liked the idea of the built in echo that Scotty Moore had on his amp, so cable-tied a little analogue delay pedal into to back recess of my Laney Cub 10. The pedal is set up for slap back, so I have a dedicated rockabilly amp!
