How an Electric Guitar Actually Works

The electric guitar has become a staple in jazz, rock and pop music. Today, many of us couldn’t even imagine our favorite tunes without the influences of Chuck Berry, B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and countless others — and who could forget how Jimi Hendrix forever changed the American national anthem ?
