  • Learn 5 Jump Blues Rhythms Using Simple Chords


    Course Page:
    TXBA Locals:
    Good blues rhythm is about having the right tool for the job, and when it comes to playing an uptempo swing blues number, a normal blues shuffle isn’t always the right tool.

    In this course I’ll teach you five rhythms to play over a Jump Blues track, based on simple chords you already know. The rhythms are slightly syncopated, but appropriate for intermediate level players.

  • Jump Blues Backing Track - Fast shuffle/ swing blues in C major


    This is a jump blues backing track in C major. It's at twelve bar fast shuffle, but with a few extra chords added. There is a 2-5-1 progression starting from bar 9, that gives the track a little more jazz feel to it.

    Great for playing licks in the style of guitarists like Duke Robillard, T bone Walker, Brian Setzer etc...

    This track is great for practicing swinging licks in the style of guitarists as Brian Setzer, Duke Robbilard etc. But it's also great playing B B King style major pentatonic licks over this backing track

  • How to play Swing or Jump Blues in C.. Easy to Intermediate


    Me dickin' around with chords. Key is C, chords are just alternates... you can use this in slow Blues, as well.
    Either 1-4-5 or use the sharp 5 in the turn around.
    Instead of a simple 1-4-5 major chord pattern, these chords (and others) allow the rhythm player to add some additional voicing to a song, but be careful not to step on the lead player, if there is one. When you are using chord extensions, it's important that you aren't hitting dissonant tones against the leads.
    These types of chords are, sometimes, referred to as inverted. They cause you to turn your hand inward to play them. If you haven't used these types of chords before, it might take a few minutes to get accustomed to playing them.

  • Jump-Blues Guitar Killers - pt 1


    I have an immense respect for Rhythm and Blues early electric guitarists in the 40's. I recognize them as the real pioneers of Rock and Roll music. Charlie Christian, the leader, inventor of the bop-chorus guitar solo style, T.Bone Walker, and many other underrated great musicians. I have made this book (written in french) and this painting (printed as a poster) to pay hommage to them. The jazz had been nothing but a sophisticated white concept, as Johnny Otis didn't stop to claim, a manner to supplant the real popular Afro-american Music Art, scorned during a long time under the etiquette of race records, which is the Blues and the Rhythm and Blues. The History of it had been widely falsified. The success of Rock'n'Roll music close to my generation, refusing segregation tricks, induced to the curiosity of discovering the source, the roots, the real human creators, so much often robbed, and to restitute their great contribution like said B.B.King.

  • Beginners Jump Blues Soloing


    Please help support my lessons by donating here:

    Jump Blues is an up-tempo, jazz-tinged style of blues that first came to prominence in the mid- to late '40s. Usually featuring a vocalist in front of a large, horn-driven orchestra or medium sized combo with multiple horns, the style is earmarked by a driving rhythm, intensely shouted vocals, and honking tenor saxophone solos - all of those very elements a precursor to rock & roll. Jump blues was the bridge between the older styles of blues - primarily those in a small band context - and the big band jazz sound of the 1940s.

    Jump Blues was and is practiced by guitar giants such as Brian Setzer, T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian, Gatemouth Brown and Freddie King.

    This 24-bar Jump Blues solo (really two distinct 12-bar solos) is a straightforward introduction to jump blues. It’s kept simple so that no tricky harmonized lines, diminished scales, double-stops or other “tricks” are present, and it’s slow enough to understand how the “play by the chord” style works to create and interesting solo for the listener.

    Here’s the TAB:

    Because jump blues bands can't play up tempo shuffle all night, they often throw in a slow blues for variation. This is one of the very few minor grooves we find in the Chicago blues style and it has Magic Sam written all over it.

    Aside from using a minor chord on the I, it also uses a neat and open sounding voicing on the IV and V chord.

    Example 6 uses triad inversions on the top three strings. These are small chords played in a steady rhythm pattern, that are especially useful in a setting with more than 1 guitar or with a keyboard player.

  • Jump Blues/Swing Guitar Rhythm For Rockabilly Guitarists


    Hello everyone..Damian here with another roots music guitar vid. I busted out my epiphone emperor regent for this one, I bought this guitar about 14 years ago. When I started getting into joe pass, and jazz guitar in general. The soloing I do is more on a 40 and 50's r&b feel to it, then my usaul rockabilly soloing, but they are very close as you can see and hear. The rhythm playing you see and hear in this vid is an extension of the rhythm part I show in my dvd, I always wanted to play rhythms like this instead of just doing the basic A chord to D9 back to A then to E9 and so on..I always wanted to appear and sound more fancy when playing out, or make it sound more jazzy if you will.

    Jump Blues is a style that originated in the Big Bands of the late 40's and early 50's.

    Although guitar players played mostly rhythm in those days, the uptempo, open and fresh sound has had a major influence on blues guitar players and their solos.

    Copying the feel and rhythm parts of the horn sections that were featured in those Big Bands has found it's way into modern day jump blues. Playing these accompaniments makes playing backup as interesting and as challenging as playing a solo.

    This has made Jump Blues one of the most popular styles of blues in the last decades. Many modern blues bands use swing and jump riffs, licks and chord tricks that originated in those days. This uptown danceable kind of blues has a happier feel than the down home Delta style and is mostly played uptempo.

    It does require a little bit more studying, because we're using more than the minor pentatonic or blues scale. This course is designed in a way that you can introduce some new scales and chords to your solos and accompaniment, without having to study till your fingers bleed.

    It is a great way to break out of the blues box and can also be used as an introduction to playing jazz.

    Both Freddie King and Clarence Gatemouth Brown are players that contributed immensely to the jump blues idiom. Both players had an impeccable timing and wrote great instrumentals.

    Among Freddie Kings' best are Hideaway, Sen-Sa-Shun and The Stumble. Gatemouth's claim to fame includes the phenomenal Okie Dokie Stomp. All these instrumentals are finger busters and are often played verbatim at jam sessions. Check them out!

    This style solo is in straight time, because even jump blues players can get tired of playing up-tempo shuffles all night.

    It uses double stops, playing sixth intervals and rakes.

    Another Jump Giant you have to listen to is T-Bone Walker. With his style of playing he has influenced countless others, from Duke Robillard to Ronnie Earl, Rick Holmstrom, Dave Specter and almost every jump player still around.

    With his curious way of holding the guitar (almost like a Dobro, meaning horizontal) and his showmanship on stage (doing splits!) he was a joy to watch and listen to.

    In this solo we see a number of his licks turn up, mostly played out of the first blues position. The intro is a typical T-Bone Walker one that comes in many variations. Listen to his rendition of Glamour Girl and you'll hear what I mean.

    One of the pioneers of Chicago blues accompaniment is Robert Junior Lockwood, who recorded with Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter, Muddy Waters and a bunch of other Chicago greats. As you can see in the next examples, the guy deserves a statue himself.

    These examples use intervals combined with melody / bass lines. This way of accompanying is pretty thick, so if you're using it, play behind the singer or soloist, meaning soft.

    The major third of the chord is kept constant, while you play another line on top of it. These examples can be challenging, because of the right hand picking movement.

    The end of a blues progression is called a turnaround. It signals the end of a chorus and the beginning of the next. When you solo, it helps to be clear at that point about what you're going to do; take another round or finish off.

    Sometimes a player will jazz up a turnaround and introduce a different progression (II-V-I) or play a real weird scale on the V chord. This makes the resolution to the I chord, back at the beginning of a chorus, more distinct.

    A turnaround will often also be played in a chorus that's being sung.

    Be careful not to be in the way of the vocalist.
