Strings of nylon or steel bound together on a wooden device when strummed with fingers or a pick create music that is food for the soul! Confused? Well, it’s the music by a guitar that we are talking about! Guitarists are people who are well versed with the technique of playing a guitar. Broadly divided into the category of classical, acoustic, electric and bass guitar, the genre of guitar music has greatly evolved since its emergence. Guitarists have seized quite a sizeable popularity when it comes to music fan following, with their rock, metal, jazz, folk, classical and acoustic forms. While Americans are credited with popularizing guitar music, it were the Brits’ who refashioned the music style to make it edgier, harder, inventive and melodic! Spearheaded by Sir Paul McCartney of The Beatles fame, British guitar players pushed the art form to celestial heights with their inventive technique and powerful play. Laced with soulful renditions, dazzling technique and quality content, British guitarists helped the instrument rise up to monumental standards. Some of Britain’s ace guitar legends include Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, George Harrison, Steve Howe, Angus Young and so on.
