Summary

Summary

Whether theyre acoustic or electric; a Fender, Gibson, or Rickenbacker; whether theyre used to play rock or blues or country; guitars have revolutionized the music industry and have struck a chord with music fans everywhere. An anthology of memoirs, stories, and reminiscences about acoustic and electric guitars and their vital role in all styles of music, This Old Guitar is the supreme tribute to this popular instrument and pop culture icon. The stories in "This Old Guitar" cover such themes as first guitars, learning to play, guitar love and lust, oddball guitars, famous guitars that made (or didnt make) history, playing air guitar, the cliches of smashing and burning guitars, and more. The stories come from journalists and historians well-known in the music industry, including Dan Forte (former editor of Guitar Player and Guitar World magazines), Michael Wright (author of "Guitar Stories" vols. 1 and 2, and contributor to "Vintage Guitar" magazine), Ward Meeker (editor of "Vintage Guitar" magazine), and Charles Shaar Murray (Author of "Crosstown Traffic and Boogie Man"). Sidebars include quotes from such famous musicians as Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker, B. B. King, Pete Townshend, Jimi Hendrix, and more.
