...for all the accolades Chuck receives for his material, often lost in the discussion is his guitar leads - he was the first to package what blues and jazz greats had done before into what still is modern lead guitar. Berry set the bar, his method of walking through blues scales, of incorporating double-stops - countless licks, runs, riffs that influenced every generation of guitarists since.

Elvis may have been the King, but Chuck was the Father.
