KANSAS CITY – Guitar Lesson

Although penned in 1952 by the late Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller, it didn't become a classic until the 1959 Wilbert Harrison recording. One of their most covered songs, The Beatles released a great version in the 60s with a dynamite vocal by Paul. Here's your Kansas City guitar lesson!
