<Previous | Next>

 

The first person to play guitar the way it is now was T-bone Walker. He played the first blues solos on the primitave electric guitars in the late 30's and early 40's. T-bone brought blues and crazy antics to Jazz music in the 30's. When T-Bone played a solo at the radio station where BB-King worked, BB went and bought an electric guitar and went on to become the embassador of blues, changeing music, all thanks to T-bone.
