National Electric Guitar Day
November 27th is National Electric Guitar Day. The Electric Guitar is the instrument that inspired me to be a musician, listen to rock and roll, play guitar hero and study audio engineer. I also learned that thanks to the electric guitar the recording industry was technically born, due to the multitrack being born and that created a whole movement. One thought from the Legendary guitar player Les Paul, led to many things such as stereo, and great albums such as Pet Sounds, Sgt. Peppers for the Lonely Hearts and many many others. Also, November 27th marks a special day for many other events which you can check on this blog post. : https://mikel.media/national-electric-guitar-day/
