Stand By Me - Ben E. King - Guitar Lesson
Songs & Artists - Ben E. King

Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members This is the song that epitomizes the 50s sound and even gave name to the 50s Chord Progression. Ben E. King wrote and recorded it in 1961 and it has been covered by hundreds of artists since, including Sam Cooke and John Lennon. The progression is very simple but the bass line is a big part of what made it so distinctive. This lesson covers a Campfire Version as well as a way to incorporate the bass line into the rhythm pattern. There is also a segment on experimenting with other common keys.

It would be useful if you gave the strumming pattern symbols on your charts. Thankswritten by briancbl, September 21, 2013
