Brian Setzer Rockabilly Guitar Techniques
- Steve Trovato Page One

Just when I was already excited about a couple of other Rockabilly guitar lessons here comes another good new learn rockabilly guitar presentation.

Steve Trovato's! Just imagine how much better it could have been if only there was a pamphlet.

Steve tells us this guitar lesson is divided into 5 sections the first 3 of which are basic rockabilly rules we need to reach a mutual understanding with. 

The last two sections will be two complete solos in the style of Brian Setzer and/or Carl Perkins and that he will play it and then explain it to us.  Scotty Moore is another famous guitar heroic champion mentioned. Think Elvis hits!

Steve is a master of guitar abilities and these licks worthy once you sort out your guitar slap back echo or digital delay - so if you want that rockabilly sound it would be nice to have the means to achieve it at your feet.

Steve plays a G & L Telecaster ASAT type guitar with a single Florentine F hole. This isn't a traditional Rockabilly 6 string instrument like a Gretch 6120 but with its wet signal I can't tell the difference really from other guitars.

It looks like its got P-90 pickups on it. I have a G & L S-500 and they make great guitars! Steve also has a great bass player and drummer behind him helping set the mood. He opens by talking about the tight sound of one delay 135 -140 Millie seconds, one repeat, feed back zero, the level of delay is as loud as original sound, he also talks palm muting secrets and pedal tones too.
