I know most here are not into this very early style of Rock N' Roll, and it's all probably basic stuff , but today I had a flash of inspiration. I was looking around a general kind of store looking through a bin of CD's. I found a "Best of Chuck Berry" and a song I was looking for was on there,"Promise Land". First time I heard it was Elvis singing it in the Men In Black movie. I just loved it. Found the lyrics on line and it said written by Chuck Berry., unknown album. That was couple years ago. Anyway ,at first I just went straight to that song , then went back to the beginning to listen to the rest of it on the way home. As I was listening it struck me all the riffs,different tempo's, that could go in with the songs. I could "hear "it all in my head. As usual ,what's in my head and what comes out of my fingers are two different things. I thought if I could see and hear some basics "in the style of" maybe I can bring my thoughts to life. They are some really great songs as per all the artists that have covered them. Johnny Winter, Rolling Stones, George Thourogood to name a few. Surely no matter what style you like to play there's something here everyone could benefit from .
Gonna go back to some "Johnny(Sammy) B. Goode"! Thanks, Sam

All right Jerry!! I was just thinking who to maybe ask and one of yours was my first lesson here so why not you, and here you go and offer! Really looking forward to it. Thanks man.I have the TAB for Johnny B Goode in a Guitar mag that I have and fooled with it a little this afternoon but have to finish some work around the house so it's on tap for this evening since I have no other plans and have to be at work early (5am) so I'm not going out anywhere. Man I'm jazzed up now!WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
