Ollie, London 2015 –

“As someone who’s played acoustic guitar for a few years, I
was keen to widen my range and learn the classical style. Ben was patient & concise in introducing me to this new technique, pitching the lessons at just the right level to complement my ability. I found that I improved quickly, which is testament to Ben’s fun and engaging tuition. He’s a highly skilled player and teacher who I’ll definitely use again when I return to the UK!”

Nadene, London 2015 –

“Ben has made guitar lessons fun, and it is something our son looks forward to doing each week. There is the right mix of lauhging and teaching. Ben has kept the lessons interesting and encouraging, and he inspires our son to actually want to practice! Our son said, “he is the greatest teacher I’ve ever had”. We are really pleased and highly recommend Ben”

FAVOURITE GUITARISTS – EDDIE COCHRAN

GUITAR LESSONS LONDON‘S  FRIEND PAUL WOOD IN WITH A STORMING ADDITION IN OUR BRILLIANT SERIES OF FAVOURITE GUITARISTS…..THIS TIME ITS EDDIE COCHRAN

One of the classic early rock’n’roll guitarists, Eddie Cochran had only a  4 year period in the spotlight  to create and cement his trademark sound, which still continues to be relevant today.  Just think of “C’mon Everybody” and “Summertime Blues” and you’ve immediately got the Eddie Cochran sound in your head.

Here’s the single version of “C’mon Everybody” to get you in the mood:

Like another early pioneer Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran was able to combine inventive guitar playing and trademark riffs with songs that captured the sound of Teenage America with humour and flash. He also had the charisma, looks and the writing/arranging/multi-instrumental skills to suggest he could have been an even bigger star if he had survived longer than his 4 year spell in the limelight.

Self-taught on guitar, Eddie could play all styles of guitar and was equally at home on ballads as well as his out and out rockers. Although renowned for his trademark   rhythm sound, as documented on “C’mon Everybody”/Summertime Blues/Somethin’ Else”, he was also a very tasty lead player and often contributed lead to other people’s recordings. Here’s Eddie showing he can play the blues on his instrumental tune, Eddie’s Blues. Check out the lightning lead breaks at 1.19 and then again at 3.16:

Signed to Liberty in 1956 at the age of 17, his first releases were “Sittin’ In The Balcony” and “Twenty Flight Rock” (which Eddie featured in the classic rock’n’roll film “The Girl Can’t Help It).  Here’s a clip from the film showing Eddie playing “Twenty Flight Rock:

1958 produced two bona fide smash hits – “C’mon Everybody” and “Summertime Blues”.

Here’s a live TV clip of Eddie playing “C’mon Everybody”:

And here’s a Youtube lesson discussing and playing “Summertime Blues”:

 

1959 produced another Cochran classic -“Somethin’ Else”.

 

A firm favourite of the early UK rock’n’roll guitarists, he was credited by “Big” Jim Sullivan as the man who showed him how to get the American rock’n’roll bendy string sound by replacing the normal 3rd string with a much lighter 2nd string. This was an idea which Joe Brown (also on the Cochran/Vincent tour bill) saw and adopted.

Sadly, Eddie was to die at the age of 21 while on a tour of the UK in 1960. Returning to London after the last gig of the tour in Bristol, for a flight back to the States, Eddie’s taxi went off the road and hit a lamppost – killing Eddie and badly injuring his tour co-star, Gene Vincent.

His legend lives on in his recordings and the tributes paid by later stars such as Brian Setzer –  his love of the Gretsch guitar being inspired by the image and sound of the young Eddie Cochran.

Signature guitar

Eddie was famously associated with playing an orange Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins hollow body guitar.

Gretsch have honoured Eddie through their production of both the G6120 Eddie Cochran Signature Hollow Body guitar and the (very expensive) limited edition G6120 EC Eddie Cochran Tribute Custom Shop guitar.

For an excellent video demonstration of the Tribute guitar and a discussion of  the Eddie Cochran sound, see this video featuring rockabilly guitarist Darrel Higham (Imelda May Band):
