Bert Weedon ( the guitar man)

The legendary guitarist / Teacher Bert Weedon has passed away at the age of 91, His numerous guitar lesson books filled shelves of many music shops and book stores and have influenced many guitarists like Eric Clapton, Hank Marvin, etc . Although he was a great guitarist, His sound was very clinical and strait laced  due to his teaching methods ! I can remember Bert from when I was a Child of about 7 years old  and that was a long time ago, So he had a long musical career as a guitarist and a teacher !

              Bert Weedons famous Hofner Guitar, A fabulous guitar ( 4 string version)

 Bert will be truly missed by the music industry .
