The electric guitar is the most recognized tool of rock and roll. Images of Pete Townshend’s famous whirlwind technique or Eddie Van Halen’s Frankenstrat guitar are recognizable to any aspiring guitarist and rock music fan. Rock and roll isn’t the only genre the electric guitar has left its mark on. Artists such as Al Di Meola, Joe Pass, and Wes Montgomery have proven the electric guitar is a jazz tool while Brad Paisley, Chet Atkins, and the Hellecasters have shown its prowess in country guitar. Other artists such as Brian Setzer and Dick Dale have shown how it is perfect for rockabilly and surf, respectively.
