Jump Blues is presented as a methodology covering theory, comping, accompanist riffs, horn lines arranged for guitar, and several approaches for soloing drilling down on many approaches for opening up the neck for the scales, arps and riffs that are employed in swing and Jump Blues guitar. But what is the 'jump blues' style?

An up-tempo, jazz-tinged style of blues that first came to prominence in the mid- to late '40s ... 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." - Cub Koda, Cult figure, rock & roll legend and music writer

Jump Blues ices the cake with 12 tasty solos, followed by in-depth analysis of several Jump Blues giants such as Brian Setzer, T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian, Gatemouth Brown and Freddie King, all of whom have their own signature jump blues sound.

Sample video from the course (without the interactive player) - Freddie King:

Accompanying vocalists and soloists is a big part of the Jump Blues style and is as challenging and rewarding as soloing.
