Les Paul is one of the two legends that pioneered the development of the solid-body electric guitar (Leo Fender was the other) which is one of the reasons the rock and roll vibe lives on and has become quite the standard of music for our generation. His overall genius was the foundation for most of the recording innovations we enjoy and use today, including overdubbing, delay effects such as “sound on sound” and tape delay, phasing effects and multitrack recording.
Here is a video made in 1988 of Les Paul demonstrating an invention he dreamed up in 1944. He simply called it his “Little Blackbox” or the Les PaulVerizer.
This is a must see video. Les Paul has a captivating personality and is an entrancing performer. No way I can describe his invention better than “the man” himself . Oh, by the way he has a special guest appear during this video. His guest never played a Les Paul guitar, but we all know and love this Artist.
Les Paul was a hell of a guitar player. He probably didn’t get the notoriety he deserved as a guitarist. He was to busy inventing tools for the modern electric guitar. His place in guitar and rock history is probably etched permanently on the top.
Enough said, Check this Guitar Video out of The LesPaulverizer
