Three Chords and the Truth
11 November 2019 | by Screen_O_GenicSee all my reviews

A well done documentary on the foremost musical instrument of the 20th-Century, its origins, its long and shaky ascent to prominence, its luminaries and its lasting legacy. BBC presenter Alan Yentob goes on a trek to the places where the instrument flourished and interviews the people who not only played but also made. Entertaining and informative interviews ranging from Les Paul and Pete Townshend to air guitar players offer the variety of the personalities involved and the instrument's broad appeal. Footage of live performances and of course music highlight the distinct and unique sound of this most sexy and powerful musical medium. Although the final episode loses the plot by highlighting individual guitar players rather than focusing on the story of the guitar as a whole it was still neat to hear talented musicians express their passion and display their skill for and with their axes. Entertaining and informative this is one every guitar lover should see.
