Roy Buchanan

Here's a great Tele player that goes far to frequently uncredited. Roy Buchanan is a legend in small circles, due to his string bending and quick staccato runs. He was also a pioneer of the volume swell technique, as well as mimicking a wah-wah with his pinky on the tone control.

Buchanan's favorite axe was his 1953 Telecaster. His playing has inspired some great players, including the late Danny Gatton. Unfortunately, Buchanan's luck combined with criticism from music critics that were not receptive to Buchanan's take-no-prisoners style left him out of the spotlight.

Youtube has some great videos of Buchanan, one with him accompanied by Albert Collins, another tele-slinger.

Buchanan's life came to a tragic halt in 1988. He was arrested for causing a domestic disturbance while intoxicated and jailed. He was found dead in his jail cell, reportedly a suicide in which he hung himself from his own T-shirt. However, there is still some debate and evidence that suggests police brutality. Nevertheless, Buchanan's music lives on for those who are willing to search for it. If you like the sound of a well-played telecaster, you need to hear Buchanan.

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's bοth еquallу eԁuсative anԁ
еngaging, and ωithоut а ԁoubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.
