Classy Jazz Goodness! Caleb
This is a song written and performed by Brian Setzer. This particular recording is not the original, but a re-recording. It doesn't sound too different however, aside from a few tweaks here and there.

The guitar part usually gets all the attention here, with it's fun blues riffs and cool solos. But that low bass in the back is equally as fun.

It's not difficult, really it's just an anchored green note as you alternate between the different frets on the neck. The pattern continues for the whole song, so it could get kind of tricky as keeping the rhythm might be hard. But once you get the hang of it, it's quite fun. It feels like a pattern one would play on an upright, sounds like it too.

The pattern may go on for literally the entire song, but it's repetitiveness isn't as bad as one would think. The song is short enough, and that bouncy jazz riff is so infectious that it's hard not to bounce and groove along with it. I would certainly choose bass over guitar anytime this song comes up online.

Recommended for moderate funtimes.
