Guitar Research Paper By: Arman Setser The famous guitarist I am researching is Jimi Hendrix. Jimi Hendrix is widely considered one of the greatest musicians and songwriters of all time. He is well known for his work with his group “The Jimi Hendrix Experience”, headlining the 1969 “Woodstock Festival”, and the 1970 “Isle of Wight Festival.” He was born in 1942 in Seattle, Washington. He got his first guitar for $5 from one of his dad’s friends. He learned to play by practicing for several hours a day and watching others play.
During his time there he joined groups such as Krackerjack, the Nightcrawlers, and the Cobras. In 1977 he started the band Triple Threat, and later changed the name to Double Trouble. But, Vaughan didn’t really become famous until David Bowie heard him perform and ask him to play for his upcoming album Let’s Dance. Vaughan was influenced by many different types of musicians: blues artists like Albert King, Otis Rush, and Muddy Waters; rock guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack; and jazz artists like Kenny Burrell. Albert King was born in 1923 in Indianola, Mississippi.
Later when qualified as a legitimate sound engineer he went to work with Paul McCartney, The Hollies, and many others. His work on Pink Floyd’s Classic album Dark Side of the Moon, not only got him is first (of many) Grammy nomination, but got the attention of the world. That soon led to extreme successes as a producer, notably with Pilot’s Magic, John Milesa Highfly and Music and Steve Harley’s (Come up and See Me) Make Me Smile. He also produced the wildly successful Year of the Cat album with Al Stewart, and two albums with the band Ambrosia. In 1975, Alan met Eric Woolfson, who became his manager and partnered with Alan as a writer and performer.

By the early 1930's I had started collecting jazz records. After some college years I got a job in Los Angeles and in 1937 met David Stuart and began hanging out in his Hollywood record store on my days off. The Jazz Man Record Shop was the only record store anywhere at that time, I believe, that carried only jazz. He wouldn't even stock records by the hot swing bands, Goodman, Shaw and such. Early on I had started collecting Bix and then early Armstrong, Oliver, Clarence Williams and such groups and to some extent Morton records.

First, he joined semi-professional bands such as “The Castiles” and “Steel Mill,” but he wanted to start his own band and write his own songs.

In 1972, Bruce signed with Columbia Records, which started his career (Marzi). This is the same record company that recorded ultimately one of the best ever rock records, “Greatest Hits.” On February, 27th 1995, Springsteen introduced his first ever compilation album called his “Greatest Hits.” This record is a collection of Springsteen's greatest hits through the years and four extra tracks at the end
