In this tutorial I'm gonna teach you how to play the classic rock 'n' roll song "You Never Can Tell", as made famous by Chuck Berry. Chuck Berry is one of the most legendary guitar players of all time and his playing, performing, and songwriting has influenced generations of rock musicians.

This song contains all the classic Chuck Berry elements like the guitar intro and the classic Chuck Berry rhythm pattern.

The piano is doing most of the riffin' throughout the song, so that frees up the guitar player to lay down some solid rhythm guitar, do some classic Chuck Berry moves on stage, and sing. The whole song is based on just two chords, so all this together means that the guitar part is very simple and can be played by players on most levels.

We're gonna talk about how to get that classic rock 'n' roll tone dialed in, how to understand and not get lost in the chord progression, how to play the piano solo on guitar, and much more.

The song is in 4/4 and the quarter note equals 159 bpm, so let's get to it!
