Other Players

Read about Mary Ford


You see pix of her holding cool Les Pauls, along with Les himself. I wondered how much guitar she played or if she was just more a vocalist. Interesting life -- both her parents outlived her.



She was great, and she was a great guitarist - this is live


If you're interested in Mary Ford's story the Book "The Birth of Loud", which is the story of electric guitar and amplification in the USA, specifically where it involves Leo Fender, Les Paul, Gibson, etc, talks quite a bit about Les Paul and Mary Ford's relationship. It's quite sad in parts.

Great book, BTW!


I'll second what JimmyR said, an excellent book...


I knew she was a great talent on the guitar but did not know about the book. Adding it to my Amazon list in a few minutes.
