Lenny Breau is widely recognised as one of the greatest guitarists that has ever lived. He excelled technically, being able to play bass lines, comp chords and pick out a melody at the same time. As his career progressed his artistic approach to the guitar matured, and he was able to use his mastery of a number of styles, including jazz, country and flamenco, to produce a shimmering, emotionally charged soundscape. His trademark was his use of rapid-fire harmonics and so-called 'harp-style'.
