Tom Petty YouTube Tribute Guitar Lesson

Tom Petty, a singer, songwriter and guitarist who melded California rock with deep, stubborn Southern heritage vocals to produce a long string of durable hits, died on Monday in Los Angeles. He was 66.

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers were always one of my favorite rock bands. Tom’s unique voice and Mike Campbell’s bluesy guitar riffs got my attention right away when I first heard “Damn The Topedos” many years ago.

His songs were staples of rock radio for decades, and “Refugee” has always been my all-time favorite. I felt that I had to do something to honor Tom on my YouTube channel,  so I have produced and posted a tutorial “How To Play Refugee On Guitar”.

I hope to add more Tom Petty music tutorials as time to produce is available.  Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and remaining band members. He will surely be missed.
