Memorable Classic Rock Guitar Licks, Part Two, Lynyrd Skynyrd, “Sweet Home Alabama” [VIDEOS]
As you have noticed a few bars into “Sweet Home Alabama” we hear the voice of Ronnie Van Zandt ask the engineer to “Turn it up” which was meant for the volume in his headset. It was never intended to be a part of the song yet a blooper that worked.
There’s not a live performance to this date where you don’t hear those words muttered in the song.
The song is a staple of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s shows and when they play that song the crowd in sync yell out, “Turn It Up.”
The featured guitarist on the original studio album is Ed King.
