The Father Of Modern Blues Guitar…

T-Bone Walker

He is probably the most influential post WWII guitarist, having effected the styles of everyone from B. B. King and Chuck Berry to Jimi Hendrix, who mimicked his antics on-stage. This week’s HARLEM will look at T-Bone’s beginnings with Capitol Records and move into his heyday with the Black & White and Imperial labels during the late 1940s into the early 1950s. Rock n’ Roll guitar work owes a lot to this often overlooked legend. Matt The Cat uncovers the essential T-Bone Walker, this week on HARLEM.
