the fender stratocaster was a remake of the fender telecaster, many people who played the telecaster had different complaints and comments on how to make it better therefor the "strat" was made, with a more comfortable inverted body a rosewood v or u shaped neck and 3 single coil pickups as opposed to the teles two single coils, the strat also had what many thought a revolutional design with its two horns, but actually it is about the same classifications as a classical guitar with a cutaway for access to more frets, and last but not least the tremolo arm or "whammy bar" used to push the bridge up causing the strings to gain and lose slack allowing the tone to change quickly
The fender stratocaster was loevd and played by many artist including Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Johnson, And Ritchie Blackmore.

one who plays the guitar...well...not someone who has picked it up by buying the cheapest thing they could find and learn three songs which they play with annoying repetetiveness...one who actually knows the scales chords and musical theory ( the circle or cycle of fifths etc.)
i dont know who some of these cocky authors are but not all guitarists are rude, and not all guitarists of any genre suck hendrix althought not from a musical background could play from intuition and there are hundreds of great guitarists , paco de lucia Al DiMeola john petrucci, steve vai, eric clapton, jimmy page, carlos santana stevie ray vaughan, eric johnson, yngwie malmsteen, michael hedges, chet atkins, michael angelo batio, george harrison, b.b. king, robert cray, john mayer, buddy guy, bo diddley, joe walsh, joe perry...and im stopping just because im almost out of room... if you recognize 90% of those you are most likely a guitarist or an avid listener

an absolutely amazing british blues guitarist born in ripley surrey england, and from a youn gage had picked up a guitar and went from that, listening to blues for hours upon end clapton learned from his idols such as muddy waters and robert johnson clapton started his first band at a young age, this band was the yardbirds, they had a pop following with the song for your love but clapton didnt feel right and soon left the yardbirds, he later joined john mayall and the blues breakers and enhanced his blues sound, from there he went to cream, by this point clapton had a large following of fans and his name was scrawled onto the wall of a london building saying clapton is god...from that point clapton left cream after a few years and went to blind faith a band that didnt last as long as cream or have as many records which broke up in 1970 , clapton then sponsored and played guitar for an england tour for delaney and bonnie, after that clapton tried a more low key band with derek and the dominoes derek being eric, this rouse didnt fool many people, claptons signature sound had been recognized, but while with the dominoes eric wrote his arguably most famous love song "layla" which critics originally hated due to its meaning (claptons love for george harrisons wife), after the dominoes ended clapton started his long solo career and played with many other artists off and on, and he continued to produce his hits through his solo career with songs like "let it grow" "wonderful tonight" which debued on the slowhand album "tears in heaven" which was made in honor of his son who had died falling off a balcony, and "cocaine" clapton suprised many in 91 when he played many acoustic versions of famous songs for the hit show "unplugged" among these songs were acoustic versions of "before you accuse me" "layla" and claptons instrumental "signe", through all these years clapton remains a steeple of blues music, and will always be remembered as one of the greatest guitarists of all time
eric clapton was ironically given the nickname slowhand for his blues artistry on the guitar

Love... possible one of the most used yet least understood words In any language... to love is not to just think someone is pretty or you want to get in their pants and you call it love... Ironically Love itself does not decribe love... to truly be in love you transcend the word itself, you would do anything for this person, risk your happiness for theirs... no true description may define this feeling... something no textbook can explain and no mere scientist can understand by looking ad chemicals and synapses... love...well it just Is.
One famous example of what is believed to be love... Is Romeo And Juliet.
