John Lee Hooker – Boom Boom

John Lee Hooker

Boom Boom

This is the classic John Lee Hooker tune, played by the man himself. This isn’t the style of fingerstyle playing we normally feature on this site, but JLH defies categorization, as all good music should. Boom Boom is not only one of Hooker’s most widely known songs, it’s also one of the funnest songs in the world to play. Watch out for a lesson and transcription soon!

Feel free to drop us a line or a comment if you’re dying to play it now, or worse, if we forget.

  1. Good to see you back. I gotta follow along now that you’re updating the site again. Mainly I just fool around, but I downloaded a tab of this a long time ago, but never got along to learning it.

    Buddy Guy played a bit of this song at his concert on Sunday.

  2. Thanks Muskie,

    Life gets in the way of things sometimes but we’re back to stay/
    I say if you’ve got the time, learn it – it’s basically one riff over E/A/B, a real scorcher.

    How was Buddy Guy?
