Lenny Breau

Primary Instrument: Guitar

Born: August 5, 1941 | Died: August 12, 1984    

Lenny Breau is considered to be one of the elite in the world of jazz guitar. His peers recognize him as one in a short line of guitarists who not only changed jazz guitar but the way guitar was played in general. One of his heros, Chet Atkins even called Lenny his hero. Breau's admiration for all kinds of great music, found him incorporating ideas of flamenco, classical, and other styles in his playing. His legacy is heard in jazz players even today, especially his right hand harmonics technique. For more information please visit the official Lenny Breau web site at www.LennyBreau.com.
