Les Paul (1915 – 2009)

The great Les Paul has passed away today.  He had huge impact on the guitar field and as well as the multi-track recording field.  If you’re not familiar with the man we encourage you to take some time today and look back at what he’s done.

One of the best documentaries on Les Paul, which is an absolute must see, is the ‘Chasing Sound!’ documentary. Below is a preview clip from that documentary.
