Les Paul

Checkout this video of Les Paul show casing these innovative (at the time) over dubbing and tape delay techniques.

Les Paul did so much more than make a famously sought after brand of guitars with Gibson. He was an innovative guitarist. But he was also an early innovator in recording technology.

“Les Paul is credited with many recording innovations. Although he was not the first to use the technique, his early experiments with overdubbing (also known as sound on sound), delay effects such as tape delay, phasing effects and multitrack recording were among the first to attract widespread attention…” – Wikipedia

His guitar playing ain’t to bad either :)
