I’ve only gone and made a lesson on bloody Johnny B Goode! I did definitely think twice about filming this three-part series on Chuck Berry’s classic, simply because it’s such an over-familiar, clichéd song to most people. But I’m really glad I went ahead. It’s about time I had a few of the all-time guitar classics up on my site, and I’ve tried to make this the most complete and accurate exploration of JBG out there.
If you don’t know this one yet, it’s definitely a must-learn track for any guitarist. If you already know it, then it might still be worth taking a look. Through making the videos I discovered quite a few new things myself, even though I’ve been playing the song for absolutely ages. Check it out: Part 1 – Intro, Part 2 – Rhythm, Part 3 – Solo.
