ARLEN ROTH INTRODUCES US TO THE ‘TELEMASTERS’
Like any subculture, the guitar world has its secret heroes. Players who aren’t household names, but who are beloved by other guitarists. Within this subculture are American-influenced players, not all of whom are born in the United States, who specialize in a uniquely American sound that combines country, jazz, bluegrass, and blues. Arlen Roth is one of these revered players, and TeleMasters is his tribute to these less well-known guitar heroes and the Fender Telecaster, the guitar favored by so many of them.
