RIP Les.

Aside from the guitars, i first heard of Les Paul in the late 80's when i saw a documentary on tv called 'The Wizard of Wakesha'. I was gobsmacked that not only was he one of the first pioneers in terms of inventing the electric guitar, but he also invented multi-tracking, and was a great guitarist in his own right.

Here's a clip that shows off his multi-tracking, & his playing.
The Django influence is more than obvious.

yeah. If you scroll to the right at the end, with the links, you can see him shredding over 'I found a new baby'. Under the title ' Les Paul wailing'.
