How Guitars Changed Music

Early in the last century, guitar music emerged as the new sound. The blues, jazz, country and eventually rock’n roll gained popularity when radio stations made local players famous and guitar bands household names with their innovative beats and arrangements.

America was changing and guitar music played a hand in that change. Music can tie a person to a time and place depending on how old you were the first time you heard a new song. Without music I fear this world would be a rather boring place.

We enjoy the now, anticipate the future and respect guitar musicians of the past. We share our passion for guitars with you by revealing rare insights and secrets of famous guitarists here on our site.

Some of the most amazing musicians of all time came to life on the radio once the electric guitar became popular, and they had the power to blaze a trail of emotion in our minds, leaving permanent memories to relive every time you hear one of their tunes years later.
