The man who taught me and several generations of guitarists how to play, Bert Weedon, has died at the age of 91.
The ‘Play In A Day’ book was used by millions around the world as they grappled with the 6 string beast for the very first time. He is attributed to have been the man who taught The Beatles how to play.
Since the 1970s the book’s appeal began to demise, but its impact on the guitar playing of both our contemporaries and our heroes remains.
I’m guessing the Angels are brushing up their harp skills in anticipation of his arrival.
Did he teach you how to play? Let us know.
