Rock n’ Roll Important note on the “Rock and Roll” and “Rock” resources… Rock & Roll was just too influential in the history of American music to limit to a single lesson, so I split it into two. The “ Rock & Roll ” resource focuses on the advent of Rock & Roll in the 1950s when music became more about the performance than the recording (e.g. Elvis shaking his hips, Chuck Berry working the guitar, Jerry Lee Lewis abusing the piano, Little Richard, Buddy Holly, etc.). The “ Rock ” resource covers what many of us now refer to as "classic rock", focusing more on the 1960s with artists like the Beatles, Zepplin, the Stones, Clapton, Hendrix, Joplin, the Doors, etc.).
