Guitar Tablature: “Chuck’s Duck”
Learning how to play “Chuck’s Duck” on guitar will give you a chance to practice the deliberate-sounding, classic rock ’n’ roll of the late ’50s. To play “Chuck’s Duck,” you need to know how to play licks with the pentatonic minor scale; how to play double-stops and double-stop bends; and how to bend down on one knee and hop across a stage without requiring arthroscopic surgery afterward.
Double-stops, the pentatonic minor scale, and continuous eighth notes characterize the classic rock ’n’ roll sound. Notice the quick, bursting bends on the 3rd string in bars 6 through 9.
