Les Paul's "Instructional DVD For Guitar" presents a rare and historical in-depth view of the living legend that inspired the revolutionary development of the recording industry. Les not only invented the electric guitar, he also perfected the technique of multi-track recording and experimented with the use of "echo", what we now refer to as "reverb" by developing the first filtration devices for reverb, delay and phrasing.
In addition to the inventions, Les performed in renowned jazz concerts as well as for live radio and televison audiences. He and wife Mary were the stars of the popular and classic radio and television show of the '50s, "The Les Paul Mary Ford Show," where Les frequently tried new ideas and inventions that became standards for the recording industry.
This interview interspersed with performance clips takes you up close with Les Paul for a fun, humorous and incredibly educational view into the awesome world of music as seen by one of the truly great guitarists, musicians and innovators of all times.
