Slightly earlier, jive music originated in the United States in the 1930s and 1940s, based around a dance style in 4/4 time which began to shape the musical tastes and flavours of a generation. Closely associated with swing music, the style was based heavily around brass instruments as well as some string instruments, including guitars, which later became the staple sound of rock and roll.
