Chuck Berry Rocks This Month's GT

The lead story in this month's Guitar Techniques is Chuck Berry, and how his influence on the rock guitarists that came after him is as strong as ever. He was a massive force over The Beatles, The Stones and Beach Boys, and later on bands like The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and The Sex Pistols.

Play through our fantasy jam with Chuck himself, Carl Wilson of The Beach Boys, Jimi, AC/DC's Angus Young, Steve Stevens of Billy Idol's band and, finally, Edward Van Halen.

Use Chuck's licks and style as a template for your own blues-to-rock playing; his style is as valid today as ever, and a few of his trademark double-stops can pep up any rock or blues solo.

Issue 170 is on sale now. What are you waiting for?
