This was supposed to be a follow-up to the Rollin' & Tumblin' solo, but I sort of rambled on and ended up playing loads of my favourite rockin' solo's!! Its terrible editing and I talk a load of nonsense but I feel its a broad look at Rockabilly playing in general and have decided to upload it here to see if it helps any of you out that have stumbled upon this with a new interest in the music. Or even if you know the music well but get stuck on a few things every now and then.

This video might help out, or it might not. But I haven't done much of this sort of thing before and so I'm making it up as I go along!

The songs played - in no particular order, in keeping with the general vibe of the video - are as follows;
SWEET LOVE ON MY MIND - A brief look at Grady Martin from his work with the great Johnny Burnette & The Rock 'n' Roll Trio.
GOOFIN' AROUND - Frannie Beecher's magnificent playing with Bill Haley on this wonderful instrumental.
BIG SANDY - By Bobby Roberts. I've no idea who played lead guitar on this, but I'd love to shake his hand if he's still around.
TEENAGE BOOGIE - The Webb Pierce track, much loved by all who've heard it. A sort of absent-minded version here, but you'll get the jist of it...
ROCKIN' & FLYIN' - A little bit of the solo Eddie Cochran plays in an out-take that hasn't been released yet but I've got on a CD that has all the known takes of it.
BLUE JEAN BOP - A token effort at some Cliff Gallup.
HOT DOG - A great solo from Shakin' Stevens first big hit from 1979. I know not who played this, either, but he's brilliant.

So there you go. Hope its of some help.
