I have started listening to many of Chuck Berry’s songs. I noticed there are three or four different identifiable rhythms he uses in his songs. Most of his songs start off with one of the rhythms and many continue the rhythm throughout. It is as if he made different lyrics for the same song.
Why is this?
What I mean is, most of his songs begin with the same tune, then have the same beat with different lyrics. From 0:00 to 0:06 in Johnny B. Goode he uses a tune that is in most of his other songs.
