About Playlist

Les Paul was an American Jazz, Country, and Blues guitarist and songwriter. But he was first of all an inventor as he was one of the pioneers of the solid-body electric guitar. The instrument outlived its creator, becoming the favorite companion of generations of guitar players, and particularly those who contributed to making the stuff of legends, from the 60s and 70s with Jimmy Page and George Harrison, to the 80s with U2’s The Egde, and then the 90s with Slash and Green Day. Beyond its particular sound and shape, it has become more than just a guitar, but a way of life.

Peak Guitar

by Tom Moon

If we’re not living it right now—and there’s a solid argument that we might be—then when?

Just imagine what it was like to be studying guitar in 1969. Maybe you concentrated on jazz, but you couldn’t escape Hendrix, or Clapton, or Santana. You had to contend with the freakish John McLaughlin, then evolving at warp speed. At the same moment, of course, some of the most accomplished six-string soloists of all time were walking the earth: traditionalists like Joe Pass and Jim Hall; fleet-fingered newcomers like Pat Martino; soul-jazz stalwarts like Grant Green and Kenny Burrell. And you could also hear some of the most accomplished rhythm guitar timekeepers – Ike Turner, Steve Cropper of the Stax Records house band, Jimmy Nolen with James Brown, João Gilberto.

It was a moment when the inspiration circuit was running extremely hot and when disruption meant not simply rearranging the furniture but building whole new houses. One way to tell just how significant 1969 was as a source of inspiration: Take a peek into what was right around the corner. ZZ Top. Black Sabbath. Derek and the Dominos. Free. Chicago II. James Gang. Deep Purple. Funkadelic (featuring the perpetually under-appreciated Eddie Hazel). Grand Funk Railroad. Stevie Ray Vaughan. George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass. And on and on.
