In honor of the passing of Chuck Berry, check out this free guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain covering a basic “Johnny B. Goode” guitar lick.

“Chuck Berry’s influence cannot be overrated, this opening lick is right from Johnny B Goode. Angus Young channeled him for the intro to the Highway To Hell Solo. I am a fan of Berry’s and I recommend his greatest hit collection. Rock and Roll Music, Roll Over Beethoven, Maybellene, and You Never Can Tell are some great examples.” – Jeff McErlain
