    Just found this, but it seems great. I may even look for and buy a hard copy to make sure this dude gets payed.

    Posting it in case it may be of benefit to others.

    I'm most of the way through it ( just a quick watch, not playing yet) and love it.
    Great find!

    I have a TruFire swing blues lesson that's really good, can't think of the guy's name but well worth the $

    I really like it cause I always just fake it when it comes to jump blues, especially the chords which I had no clue about how the shapes are so specific, but he really breaks it down. I was playing totally square chords daddy-o! I wish he had lead stuff too, but I can fake the leads better than I can the chords! :eek::D

    Thanks so much for sharing this. I'm planning on buying Damian Bacci's Swing and Jump Blues DVD but I'm going to study this as well!

    I've had the DVD for ages, and it's a great introduction to the style. David Blacker's Truefire courses are a good follow up, especially for the lead stuff that solos over the minor second to the five.

    I got Damian’s Swing DVD, but his lesson method on this set is different than on his Ultimate Rockabilly set. I found the Ultimate Rockabilly lesson method to be easier to absorb. Overall though, Damian is very knowledgeable and a good teacher.

    Keith covers a lot of stuff in the video above, but it’s pretty approachable. I’m gonna give it a shot.

    Just curious what you find different. I was thinking about buying it as I like his videos and also have the Ultimate Rockabilly set.

    I'm being cheeky here...but sometimes there's too much talking and explanation of the very obvious...then sections where I think nope, that's just too hard. I listen to Charlie Christian solos and think yep, I want to play that. Then when I learn some of the arpeggios, they seem a bit dead and tuneless out of context. I learned enough to bluff and add some colour to my solos, then walked. No doubt I'll get back to some study at some point

    I totally get what you mean. That's why I've traditionally always given up on most instructional videos after picking up a thing or two and then just winged it! :D

    On the topic of jump blues. It might be a good thread to add any favorites. I only know a few but enjoy it. Although a little more on the bluesy side, T-Bone Walker is a favorite of mine.



    Steve Lucky and the Rhumba Bums are a more recent group I’ve enjoyed. Sort of Jump Blues and Swing from the 90’s but they’re still playing.

    First song after intro music starts at 5 minutes.

    Great stuff. I discovered Keith Wyatt around the same time as Emily Remler. (RIP)
