The Best Of Eddie Cochran - Tutorials

1. Hallelujah I Love Her So

Eddie Cochran released his version of this song in 1959. I say his version because he didn't write this one. It was written by Ray Charles in 1955 and recorded in 1956. But other artists have also recorded this song including Peggy Lee, The Beatles, Humble Pie and Stevie Wonder.

  • Drop D Tuning = No
  • Capo = No
  • Rhythm = root up down up root up down up with a few stop and chops
  • Picking = Yes
  • Chords = G, G6, C, C#7, D7, Gdim, Em, B7, A7, E7

2. I Remember

This song, I Remember, was recorded for a 1959 movie called Go, Johnny Go. This song was eventually cut and did not appear in the movie but the A-side entitled Teenage Heaven, did make it into the film. There is no indication that this song was ever released on either an album or as a single. It was recorded only for the movie and then dropped.

  • Drop D Tuning = No
  • Capo = No
  • Rhythm = down down up down up down down and repeat with a few slides in the rhythm
  • Picking = No but some slide work
  • Chords = C, Am, F, G, C7, Em, Dm, D7

3. Jeannie

A writer by the name of George Motola wrote this song for the group The Georgettes back in the 1950's but they didn't want to record the song, so Eddie Cochran did. It was a minor hit breaking into the top 100.

  • Drop D Tuning = No
  • Capo = 2nd fret
  • Rhythm = a steady down up down up with the rock and roll standard hammer-ons for the vibe
  • Picking = Yes
  • Chords = E, A, B7
