Guitar Gods: How They Influenced the Music Scene

After a hard day, you turn on the radio to look for some good songs to listen to. As you flip through stations, you suddenly hear a beautiful melody which is escaping six harmonious strings. You listen in amazement as you wonder who could possibly possess the power to skilfully create such soulful and energetic tunes using their fingers? How are they able to make their instruments communicate a message of their own? Who are these musical geniuses? To answer your questions, here is a list of some of the most influential guitarists through the ages, in no particular order.

  • Jimi Hendrix - The American songwriter and singer is regarded as one of the greatest handlers of the six-stringed instrument in rock history. His skill is admired by music lovers from all genres. He was a pioneer in developing a playing style which used guitar amplifier feedback and was also known for using the wah-wah pedal to make an exaggerated pitch during his solos. He has been inducted into several Hall of Fames.
  • Eric Clapton - Also known as "Slowhand", his style has been rooted in blues, but he has also been an innovator in a variety of musical types. This English Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is considered as one of the most successful composers, songwriters, singers, and guitarists of the 20th and 21st century.
  • Carlos Santana - Gaining fame from the 1960s until the 1970s with his band, the Santana Blues Band, this musician continues to influence the music scene up to this century. He is known for infusing his melodic and blues-based six-stringed tunes with African and Latin rhythms featuring percussions like congas and timbales. He has won numerous Grammy Awards, too.
  • Slash - Why would a guitar maker be inspired to make an instrument that is modelled for this former lead of Guns N' Roses? And why was he chosen to be one of the virtual characters on a computer game that lets you battle it out with chord-swiping heroes? Well, listen to one of his songs to find the answer.
  • Jimmy Page - If you formed and played with the biggest rock band in the '70s, and you are considered as a god who can whip up a storm with a double-necked twelve-string device that produces amazing power riffling at a live concert, you deserve to be on a list for the greatest guitarists, right?
