The Thrill Is Gone - B.B. King Song Lessons

In this tribute to the late great B. B. King we're checking out the chords from probably his biggest hit, The Thrill Is Gone. We're going to look at the chords the way they were sometimes played by rhythm guitar players and a simple open chords version for beginners.

BB is one of my favourite guitar players of all time and I'm happy he shared so much wonderful music with us all before he left. It was also awesome that his influence and genius was recognised in his lifetime with many awards and accoldes. If you're not that familiar with his music, so yourself a favour and get some of his albums, you can't go too wrong but Live At The Regal is a great place to start, he was the real deal.

You can learn the Thrill Is Gone Intro Solo too :)

Long live the king.
