Guitartricks How to Play Bo Diddley (Bo Diddley) TUTORiAL | 1.13 GB
Henrik is going to show you how to play the classic song driven forward by it's classic beat, the Bo Diddley beat. It has just one guitar, but it is an essential guitar part that has influenced countless of songs and is still being incorporated into modern day music..
What we're going to focus on is the Bo Diddley beat. And the Bo Diddley beat is a rhythm phrase played over 1 chord for 2 bars. Basically the whole song is just on a G major chord played with the Bo Diddley beat. So it's all up to the rhythm to create the excitement in the arrangement.
Bo's guitar playing was not about leads or blistering solos, it's all rhythm and groove. Even the lead parts we're going to look into for the song are just other rhythm parts.
But make no mistake this song is not an easy task to pull off just because it doesn't have any single string lead playing. The Bo Diddley beat is no joke and is quite often misinterpreted. Once you find the right place in the pocket, it is a great groove to be in!
