R.I.P Bert Weedon
Died at home aged 91, a lot of people used his book to learn to play the guitar.
" Play in a day ".... OK, it was only three or four chords but it started loads of potential Gary Moores off on their roads.

I can remember getting my first guitar at the age of 11 and it came with Berts book. 55 years have passed and I still can only play about 4 chords (not your fault Bert). RIP a great guitarist.
Rock legends including Sir Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Eric Clapton have all cited Weedon's guitar tips in helping them learn to play.
