Watch the Chucks Blues Solo online guitar lesson by Mark Wilson from Blue Grooves

The intro for this solo utilizes double-stop triplets in a classic imitation of the Chuck Berry style. It's not so much what Berry played -- it's what he didn't play. His guitar leads drove the rhythm, as opposed to laying over the top. In the rock music of the 50s and early 60s, almost every guitar intro or break showed the influence of this ground breaking artist. Berry's approach to blues soloing still holds up very nicely when executed tastefully with or without effects. Visit Chuck Berry at
