EPISODE 14: Podcast B. Goode REDUX

This being the First episode of the New and Improved Series, I can’t think of a better place to start than with this standard classic. This song is the Epitome of Rock and Roll. The sound and style of this number, would go on to shape rock and roll music and change the way people not only play guitar but even the way they LOOK at a guitar!
It’s an absolute game changer..
This song I’m talking about.. is of course.. none other than...JOHNNY B. GOODE by the one and only.. Chuck Berry.
