Just aired, and thought I'd make a post to remind me to share the link when it appears online for you all to watch.

Currently part one has just aired, which talks about its history on a grand scale, how it came to be and its evolution from other instruments. Really interesting viewing.

Should be online in the next couple of days through the BBC iplayer (all legal, through there official site smile.gif) and will post up the link when it appears.

The second episode, airing next sunday, is all about the transformation of the guitar when it turned electric. Should be good smile.gif

For now, check out a few short interview clips from the BBC Guitar history website. Features some interviews with Gilmour, BB king and the Edge...

UPDATE 3: Here's the third and final episode link guys. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00f3...e_its_Personal/

Part 2 of this series was on last night, here's a brief overview from the web site:

"As the guitar turns electric, music is changed for ever. The world's first electric guitar had nothing to do with jazz or blues, but Hawaiian-style music and was known as the 'frying pan'.

Yentob continues his investigation from the blues of the Mississippi to the guitar wars of the 1950s, when the Fender Stratocaster and the Gibson Les Paul were battling for supremacy."

Just posted the link to the third and final episode guys. Hope you've enjoyed it smile.gif Sorry if you haven't been able to view the episodes!
"
In the final programme of the series the guitarists talk about how they find their own sound, and how the guitar has changed their lives. Since its invention, the electric guitar has unleashed a seemingly inexhaustible sonic invention among guitarists.

Featuring Muse's Matt Bellamy, who turns out to be following in his father's space age footsteps, Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath, who talks about the invention of heavy metal, David Gilmour from Pink Floyd, Pete Townshend (Perhaps equally famous for smashing guitars), Johnny Marr from the Smiths on 'the mother of all riffs', Slash and The Edge from U2 among many others. "
