Rock Around the Clock
For this lesson, Mike Pachelli will take a look at the song "Rock Around the Clock" by Bill Haley & His Comets. "Rock Around the Clock" became a major hit when it was used under the opening credits of the movie Blackboard Jungle in 1955.

It's interesting to note that "Rock Around the Clock" was a radical rock song in 1955 and influenced a generation of budding guitarists.

Mike plays a Gibson Custom ES-175 in this lesson.



Mike Pachelli
    Mike Pachelli started playing guitar as a youngster in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio. His earliest influence was Wes Montgomery who Mike says, "first opened my ears to the possibilities on guitar." Pachelli studied classical guitar at YSU and then moved to New York City to study bebop with guitar luminaries Joe Pass and Pat Martino. Mike's guitar style is an amalgamation of blues, jazz, rock, and neo-classical. He has a wealth of musical experience gained thru years of night clubs, concert halls, and recording studios. He's performed all over the U.S. and Europe with some of the most eclectic jazz, blues, pop and rock musicians including Brother Jack McDuff, Albert King, Les & Larry Elgart, Michael Sembello, Crystal Gayle, Barbara Mandrell, Jeanne Mas, Phil Keaggy, Frank Stallone (to name a few) and has done classical symphony concerts touring with Ferrante and Teicher.
