Boogie (genre)

Boogie is swing blues rhythm (Burrows 1995, p.42) or technique originally played on the piano in boogie-woogie music and adapted to guitar. As such it is often used in rock and roll and country musics. Examples include Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode", Marvin Gaye's "Can I Get a Witness" and The Shadows's "Shadoogie".

Boogie can also refer to a breed of electro funk, championed by UK DJs such as Greg Wilson in the early 1980s.
