About Albert Collins

Texas blues master Albert Collins was known for his unique Telecaster style, typified by extensive use of reverb, staccato picking, unconventional minor-key tunings, and a percussive, trebly quality. For four decades, from the 1950s on, his "cool" sound was one of the most immediately identifiable in the blues guitar pantheon, inspiring both blues and rock guitarists.
