In this series of lessons, Jinx Jones will be teaching you "Jump, Jive, an' Wail" as made famous by The Brian Setzer Orchestra. Jinx will talk about the "old school" gear and tones, then delve into the song intro. He'll then examine the first verse and chorus parts, and the second verse and chorus, followed by the guitar solo. After that, it's time to learn the key change, and how to incorporate the horn parts. We'll finish off with a play along.

Mike has arranged this song in a made easy format for acoustic guitar with simplified chords and strumming. If you’re up for a challenge, we’ve also included a bonus lesson to learn how to play the song with an 8th note triplet swing rhythm. This song uses open 7th chords, the 12 bar blues form, dynamics and a steady strumming pattern.
