Greetings Guitar People! I don’t know when you’ll need this song, I just know that you will. It’s been my constant companion in so many different parts of the world and it seems like there’s nowhere I can go where it isn't considered solid social music. This song puts us back in the key of G. We’ll be using the II chord which in this case is an A as well as the IV and V chords which, as you know (or can maybe figure out) are the C and D chords. We’ll take a look at alternating bass notes and a simple but completely effective bass run from the G to the A. Hey Good Lookin’ was a huge hit for Hank Williams, Sr. in 1951. Apparently he wrote it in about 20 minutes while traveling in an airplane. This is a good reminder that if you want to take the secret guitar knowledge you’re learning here and write songs it might be helpful to jump in with both feet and not over think things. This is social music, baby!!
