Watch the Lovers End online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Soloing the Changes

There are few guitar players who and influenced me as much as Jeff Beck has. I know I'm not alone in this thinking, and as David Gilmour said, "On a good day, there is nobody better."

Beck has been around since the British Invasion with the Yardbirds. His band The Jeff Beck Group (featuring Rod Stewart) was the impetus behind Jimmy Page forming Led Zeppelin. In the 70's, Beck abandoned vocals and went in a jazzier direction with records like Blow by Blow, Wired, and There and Back. That's where he hit his stride. Beck is one of the few guitar players I can think of who keep on getting better with age.
