Chicago blues legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Buddy Guy has established himself as one of the music world's premiere guitar players, having influenced musicians since the late '50s and paved the way for many blues players to follow in his footsteps. The Louisiana-born Guy started off with a makeshift guitar, which was made from a two-string contraption attached to a piece of wood and secured with his mother's hairpins. He later moved to Chicago and got the recognition he needed from Muddy Waters, joining his band and becoming a house guitarist at Chess Records. The rest, as they say, is history.
