In this guitar lesson, I’ll break down this Carl Perkins inspired Rockabilly guitar solo into 2 parts. Rockabilly is sort of a hybrid between country twang and blues and can be a lot of fun to play. However, one of the challenges of playing this style of guitar is that it can be very fast. I mention in the video that I’m really not a very fast guitar picker (in the traditional sense), but I’ve managed to learn a few tricks that involve slides, pull-offs, and hammer-ons with the left hand that can definitely amplify your speed. This lesson is really geared towards an electric guitar, although you should be able to do most of it on an acoustic if that’s all you’ve got. Also, if you’re a beginner, don’t let this one run you off. I try to break these solos down in great detail so that even a beginner could pick most of it up and be able to do it. Enjoy!
