A Guitar Odyssey - Wired For Sound
The Story
Music is a passion so strong it compelled a youthful Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues to beg his parents to use their meager earnings for the "perfect" guitar. The rest is history.

Guitars are more than well-crafted instruments. Musicians know each guitar holds songs that only they can coax from its strings. This connection is evident from modern-day guitars' earliest acoustic beginnings in Orville H. Gibson's workshop, to Les Paul's revolutionary invention of "The Log" (The first solid body electric guitar). In "A Guitar Odyssey - Wired For Sound", narrated by Bob Segarini, a gallery of guitar greats demonstrate musical innovations and unique styles.

Meet the "Who's Who" of guitar playing and hear the enduring sounds they created. Marvel at the mastery of guitar pioneers Chet Atkins, Chuck Berry, B.B. King, The Everly Brothers, the Elvis Presley Trio, T-Bone Walker and the "voice of a giant" - John Lee Hooker. Rock to the hard-hitting jams that define recent generations from The Eagles, The Doors, Slash, and Peter Frampton to The Smashing Pumpkins, Yes, Tom Petty, and Steve Winwood. The guitar sounds of Emmylou Haris and Travis Tritt add yet another thrill with their melodious harmonies.

As Bob Weir said, "I never related to another musical instrument like I relate to theiguitar." "A Guitar Odyssey - Wired For Sound" is a "sentimental journey" into this incredible musical experience.
