Bridging the gap between traditional, early 1900's Blues, and the Electric Blues which followed, T-Bone Walker influenced the very foundations of Rock+Roll. It's difficult to fathom his total effect. All the great bluesmen & rockers who came later, including legendary axemen like Albert King, B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Mickey Baker, Lowell Fulson, Guitar Slim, Chuck Berry, Albert Collins, Mike Bloomfield, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, & the Great Jimi Hendrix too, can all be said to have owed some technique to his electric guitar prowess.
Of course music is a cyclic & ongoing process. Nobody gets all the credit.
Just let us not forget Guitar King T-Bone Walker.
