At long last, here is a book that connects all things electric guitar--one volume that explains not only the development and architecture of the electric guitar but the profound impact and influence that the instrument has had on our culture and media.

The two authors are recognized experts on six-stringed instruments. Tolinski was editor of the much revered music magazine Guitar World, and DiPerna one of the periodical's main contributors. There are no two better-placed people in the world to write this book.

Beautifully and superbly written--would you expect anything less from these gifted authors?--Play It Loud lays out in simple fashion where the electric guitar began, where it went and how it got there. The book outlines the development of such key players as Fender and Gibson Guitars and Marshall amps and presents the main exponents of these pieces of gear, including Charlie Christian, Les Paul, The Who, Jimi Hendrix and others.

If you ever played guitar, wanted to play guitar or simply wanted to know how six wires and a hunk of wood could so profoundly change the world, you need to read this book.
