I skimmed through the video and most is not even dated correctly. It's mostly what was called swing and just blues. most of the stuff that is actually rock and roll is the 50's in this video.

I know this isn't your fault and this is still cool and all... But I think the video and or thread should've been titled with something more about "the musical pioneers who inspired the creation of rock and roll".

I decided to do a quick search on Lightnin Hopkins and this is from wikipedia but it lists his musical genres as Electric blues, country blues, Texas blues. No rock n roll. Again, wikipedia could be wrong... I think in this case it is probably correct but...?

Way back.
Like Beethoven...



The music rocked just on different instruments.

Imagine Mozart with a Gibson plugged into a stack of marshals....

All the way back to when Agrok first banged a stick on the skulls laying by his fire.

Man, the rhythm of it all started earlier than that. If you ever listen to an old blues radio, like Pandora or such, you will see where those artist got they're influence. That is where the ones after them got they're influence. It's all connected in some way by the beat and the rhythm.

And believe it or not, there are alot of new artists coming up that play really good music, not the pop crap you hear .

For me, It became Rock and Roll in the moment they added to those tunes a set of nerve wrecking drums, an unreserved bass and a noisy profane guitar.

Both of those rock!

Seriously, when you listen to good metal...say Savatage or any prog rock crap, classical music and theory is the inspiration.

ETA: As we all know, Gwar started rock when they killed the dinosaurs and strung their entrails across the Grand Canyon and wrote the first rock songs...

I'm probably incorrect, but I believe this is widely credited/ considered the 1st commercial Rock N Roll tune. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I think you need to go back all the way to LeadBelly to see the beginnings. This would be in the late 20's/30's. George Harrison even said, "no leadbelly, no beatles". There are some videos on youtube if anyone is interested.

Although R&B "race records" (recordings by black artists) existed for years before 1950, that was the year deejay Alan Freed of Cleveland, Ohio AM radio station WJW applied the term 'rock and roll' to this style of music. His radio show was called the Moondog Rock 'n' Roll Party.

Prior to this use of the term for a musical style, it had a much bawdier definition.

It's *the* big reason older folks ("squares") at the time were so offended by it--and why they insisted listening to this music enticed teenagers toward sexually-promiscuous behavior.

Let's not be L7! It's the music of De Debil!

After listening to her talent and seeing that some of her videos pull 20 million views, I was very curious about who she was...

Appears that she is guitar prodigy who began playing at age six, she clearly has a future ahead of her...

Guitarworld did a write-up on her here: www.guitarworld.com...

The video below will absolutely blow the minds of any Pink Floyd fans out there, David Gilmore would be proud...


The French born guitar prodigy who goes by the name Tina S, began learning guitar at age six. By nine she was uploading clips to YouTube demonstrating her competency on classical guitar. By her early teens she had traded the nylon strings for an electric guitar, and uploaded a video that had aspiring guitar heroes around the world collecting their jaws from the floor.

With an apparent ease that would be the envy of a generation of axe-wielders three times her age, Tina rips through a note-perfect rendition of Van Halen's seminal guitar showcase 'Eruption'.

Now with close to 14 million views, the only version of this solo seen more times on YouTube is the one played by Edward Van Halen himself. And with 60 million views on her YouTube channel to date, Tina S might just be among the most watched guitar shredders on the web.

I've Read histories of rock [ther are a few good ones] - Elements of Blues, Jazz, Gospel, Country and Westenn, etc., etc. have been shown to be part of rocks development over the years.

Here in this song from 1949 you can hear the beginning sound of genuine Rock 'n' Roll.

First Recording of Rock N Roll by Goree Carter, 1949
