Known as "The Master of the Telecaster," music lovers consider
Arlen Roth "the guitarist's guitarist," a brilliant musician, but that's
only one aspect of his remarkable 35-year career. He is a highly
regarded authority concerning "all things guitar," from writing about
guitar playing, to being the inspiration behind their creation, due to
his fluent mastery, and rare ability to seamlessly cross over musical
genres and playing styles.
His legendary guitar prowess crosses all genres, all styles, and all
types of guitar playing, including one of his specialties, slide guitar.
He fluidly moves from folk and blues to country tunes, and has
played some of the most resounding rock ever recorded. He is as
comfortable playing an acoustic ballad, (his acoustic version of
Layla has been critically acclaimed as being better than Eric
Clapton's version) as he is launching into the most powerful version
of "When a Man Loves a Woman" ever recorded, which Guitar
Player magazine called "likely the most intense workout ever
recorded on a Telecaster."
