Watch the JC Goes to Chicago online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know

One of my favorite ZZ Top tunes is Jesus Just Left Chicago. I chose to put the rhythm guitar part in this course because it has so much cool stuff to steal. Most notably, he is in standard tuning but we drop our A string down to G. This is a neat trick because the song is in G and it allows us to take advantage of the sound of open G tuning but we can still solo normally on the rest of the strings. Very cool.
