Keith Richards, an English guitarist, songwriter and founding member of The Rolling Stones, is known for his innovative rhythm playing. In 2003, he was ranked 10th on Rolling Stone magazine’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”International Guitar Month, celebrated this month, creates awareness, satisfaction and the joy of playing a guitar. Guitars are primarily used for blues, country, rock and pop music, and are enjoyed the world over.Keith Richards’ mother introduced him to the music of Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, and bought him his first guitar – a Rosetti acoustic – for seven pounds.

Richards and lead vocalist Mick Jagger knew each other as schoolboys and even lived in the same neighborhood, but cemented their friendship on a train from Dartford to Sidcup in 1961. They began talking about Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters, and later played in a band together, and the rest is history.

Richards, who owns over 1,000 guitars, is often associated with the Fender Telecaster, particularly with two 1950s Telecasters outfitted with Gibson PAF humbucker pickups in the neck position.Today, there are a wide variety of both acoustic and electronic guitars performed by musicians all over the world.
