Yesterday was the birthday of one of the pioneers of the solid-body electric guitar, which made the sound of rock and roll possible. Les Paul's early experiments with overdubbing (also known as sound on sound), delay effects such as tape delay, phasing effects and multitrack recording were among the first to attract widespread attention.
Today, we'll feature three of the greatest Classic Rock songs played on a Gibson Les Paul:
- Guns N' Roses – Sweet Child O’ Mine
- Peter Frampton - Show Me the Way
- Led Zeppelin – Whole Lotta Love
