    The obvious two starting points for me are Charlie Christian and T-Bone Walker. Next up is Tiny Grimes, Oscar Moore, and Johnny Moore. Starting there, you could go in a lot of directions with respect to the old stuff. Some of the more contemporary stuff would be Kid Ramos, Igor Prado, and guys playing with Kim Wilson…. On and on. Of course, mine youtube for videos of Tommy.

    There is a facebook group callsd Jump Blues Guitar Killers with tons of stuff.

    hey tommyboy when I get home I will send you the bop chorus compilation. I think it’s a must have. Defiinitely get you exposed to some guys that are lesser known than the ones we talk about. I have been doing lessons with Jason studying Jean-Pierre sasson. I’ll tell you thereis no shortage of great guys to study.

    Definelty join the FB jump guitar killers page. You get to hear some great stuff you never knew was out there. That bop chorus stuff Tommys got is great. There’s soooo much great stuff on it. For me, Jennings, grimes are a must. As jasonbarker5 mentioned, there are some great modern day purveyors to get into. Definelty kid ramos & igor prado. What turned my head to this style many years ago was the Duke Robillard ‘Dukes Blues’ album & Nick Curran. There’s another guy that’s great, Timmy Hamkindyer…or something…! I’ll might be blacklisted for typing this but I slightly struggle with Charlie Christian. Definelty worth an initial listen though. Have fun..!

    I got dukes blues album when it first came out loved it but drifted away from playing and listening to that style as I’ve been playing in a band doing classic country stuff like the way bill kirchen does it but not as good obviously. just recently discovered kid Ramos, jnr Watson and tommy and it’s really got me back into it and even changing my way of thinking of how I play the guitar more towArds the chord shapes when soLoing.
