Here’s a classic video in which Brian Setzer demonstrates a broad range of licks, useful techniques and effects vital to the rockabilly, blues and jazz sounds for which he is famous.

Setzer, who first achieved fame in the early Eighties with his rockabilly revival group the Stray Cats, leads his own swing band, the Brian Setzer Orchestra.

In this one-hour lesson, uploaded by José Brites, he takes his signature Gretsch model in hand for a few solo demonstrations that offer an up-close look at his techniques in action.
