I have a Fender Stratocaster too, and I challenge you to a duel. Are you up to playing "All Along the Watchtower", a song from my album "Electric Ladyland"? Who is this stranger challenging Alopeesha to a guitar duel?

Answer: Jimi Hendrix

Considered one of the finest electric guitarists of all time, Jimi Hendrix seemed destined to find his niche in the music world. From his first instrument - a single-string ukelele - to his eventual preference for Fender Stratocasters, he experimented, explored and improved his technique in an ongoing attempt to stretch the boundaries of not only his abilities, but of the music itself.
In addition to Fender Stratocasters, Hendrix was also known to use a number of other guitars, including Fender Jazzmasters, a Gibson Les Paul and a Gretsch Corvette. He used a Fender Telecaster to record "Purple Rain", a Gibson Flying V at the Isle of Wight, and his Stratocaster at Woodstock.
1968's "Electric Ladyland" was his last album as part of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and included his version of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower". The album reached number one on the US charts, and number six on the UK charts.

Who is this challenging man?

Answer: Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton has used a number of different guitars over the years, including a Gibson Les Paul, Gibson SG, Fender Stratocaster and Fender Jazzmaster. His Fender Stratocaster named 'Brownie", was purchased in London in 1967 while he was on tour with Cream. "Blackie" was constructed from three Fender Stratocasters, and first used in 1973 during his Rainbow Concert. Both guitars were eventually auctioned off, with the profits going to Crossroads Centre, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility founded by Clapton. "I Shot the Sheriff" was on his 1974 album "461 Ocean Boulevard".

The song reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. With more than 40 albums to his credit, and collaborations on more than 50 other albums, Eric Clapton has been inducted three times into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame, and in 2004 he was given the honor of being made Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

Who is this challenging guitarist?

Answer: Jimmy Page

Born in Heston, England in 1944, Jimmy Page began playing a guitar when he was a teenager. Over the course of the next decade, he played alone, with a touring band, and as a session guitarist. In 1965, he was invited to join the Yardbirds, but he did not join the group until the following year. In 1968, following some changes in members, and a short time calling themselves the New Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin was making music, and history.
Jimmy Page has used a number of different guitars throughout his career, including a Gibson Les Paul, Danelectro 3021, Fender Telecaster and Stratocaster. He used a double-necked Gibson EDS-1275 for Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" in concert, although he used a Fender Telecaster for recording the song's guitar solo.
After Led Zeppelin's breakup in 1980, Page continued to perform and record, both as a solo artist and with others. He started using a cello bow during his days as a session musician, after it was suggested to him by another session musician, David McCallum, Sr.

Who is this man challenging Alopeesha to a guitar duel?

Answer: Keith Richards

Keith Richards got his first guitar as a present from his mother when he was quite young. He had trouble at school, being more interested in his music than in his studies, and eventually joined Mick Jagger, a childhood friend, in a band named Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boy. By 1962 the two had left that group, joined up with Brian Jones and Ian Stewart, and the Rolling Stones were in business. Despite having an extensive collection of guitars, approximately 3,000, one of Richards' favorite stage instruments is a customized 1953 Fender Telecaster, nicknamed Micawber.

He has used it frequently when playing 1971's "Brown Sugar" and 1969's "Honky Tonk Woman".

I'll even let you pick the song - one from my first solo album, 1975's "Blow by Blow". "I would be honored," Alopeesha said, "to play against you. You're Jeff Beck!" Is Alopeesha right?

Answer: Yes

Jeff Beck has been associated with several groups and artists, most famously the Yardbirds and The Jeff Beck Group. Known for his blues and jazz influenced creations, Beck started playing, and innovating, at a young age. A perfectionist with a short-temper, Beck was fired from the Yardbirds, briefly considered for a place in Pink Floyd, and asked about joining the Rolling Stones (which did not work out).
1975's "Blow by Blow" was Beck's seventh album, and his first solo album. His second solo album, "Wired", was released in 1976. He quit using a pick in the 1980s, switching to fingerplay and the use of a vibrato bar. And, while his main guitar is a Fender Stratocaster, he has also used a Fender Esquire, Fender Telecaster and Gibson Les Paul.
In 2009 Jeff Beck was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist. As a member of the Yardbirds, he was also inducted in 1992.

I challenge you to outplay me on "The Thrill Is Gone", if you're willing to try." Which blues guitarist has just challenged Alopeesha to a duel?

Answer: B.B. King

Born Riley B. King. B.B. King was raised by his grandmother in Kilmichael, Mississippi, where he sang in the choir. He acquired his first guitar when he was 12, and by the age of 23 he was performing on a Memphis radio station. It was in Memphis, at the radio station WDIA, that he was given the nickname 'Blues Boy', which was eventually shortened to 'B.B.".
His first hit, 1951's "3 O'Clock Blues" was followed by a number of hits, including 1953's "Please Love Me" and 1955's "Every Day I Have the Blues". By the '60s, King's music was charting not just on the RB charts, but also on the US Hot Billboard charts. In 1969, his "The Thrill Is Gone" became one of his biggest hits - and a signature song.
King has used a number of different guitars over the years, but his best known instrument is a Gibson ES-355, which he named Lucille. According to him, the name came about when he was playing at a dance hall in Arkansas. Following a fight between two men over a woman named Lucille, and a resultant fire, B.B. King named his guitar 'Lucille', to remind himself to never fight over a woman. Nor to ever again do something as stupid as he did that night - running back into the evacuated burning building to retrieve his guitar.

Is Alopeesha correct?

Answer: Yes

At the age of 13, Steve Vai took up the guitar, and his talent led him to a future where he became known as a six-string wizard and a guitar virtuoso.
His recording career began with Frank Zappa, after which he recorded his first album, "Flex-Able", which was released in 1984. He went on to be involved with several other bands, record and perform solo, and appear as a guest musician on more than forty other albums.
While Vai has used quite a few different guitars, his two main guitars, Evo and Flo, are white JEMs with different modifications.
In addition to his live performances and recordings, Vai's music has been featured in a few movies, including 1986's "Crossroads". He also appeared in "Crossroads", where he played a guitar duel against Ralph Macchio's character. The music in the duel was actually played by Steve Vai and Ry Cooder.

Answer: Eddie Van Halen

Eddie Van Halen was born into music, with his father playing the clarinet, saxophone and piano. When Eddie and his brother, Alex, took piano lessons, Eddie, unable to read the music, played by ear. When the piano failed to suit them, they took up different instruments, and it was sibling rivalry which led Eddie to take up the electric guitar.
He has used a number of guitars, including a Steinberger GL-2T and an Ibanez Destroyer, but his signature guitar is a six-string custom made guitar with a Stratocaster body, named Frankenstrat.
With the founding in 1972 of a band called Genesis, then renamed Mammoth, the group changed their name to Van Halen in 1974, and within four years their self-named debut album was climbing the charts. "I'm the One" was from the debut album, "Beautiful Girls" was on 1979's "Van Halen II", "Jump" was on the 1984 album titled "1984", and "Push Comes to Shove" was on 1981's "Fair Warning". Despite several upheavals in personnel, Van Halen has continued to perform and record for more than 40 years.

Answer: Duane Allman

Duane Allman was influenced by blues artists at a young age, and as a teenager he knew what he wanted to play. Dropping out of high school, he and his brother, Gregg, formed a band called the Escorts. After that group disbanded, they formed the Allman Joys, then The Hour Glass, before finding their feet, and success, as the Allman Brothers Band in 1969. Duane's guitar prowess helped the band's sound evolve into what came to be called Southern Rock. In between performing and recording with his band, Allman continued to work as a session musician, something he had done, and enjoyed, during the late '60s.
His first foray into using a slide came about in 1968, when he used a medicine bottle his brother had left for him. From that first time, the resultant sound became an integral part of his playing and the band's sound.
Before his death in 1971, Duane Allman participated in three albums recorded by The Allman Brothers. The three were 1969's studio album, "The Allman Brothers Band", 1970's studio album "Idlewild South" which included the track "Midnight Rider", and 1971's live double-album "At Fillmore East". "Ramblin' Man" was from 1973's studio album "Brothers and Sisters".

"I won't ask who are you, but I will challenge you to play it! That is one of The Who's biggest hits, and one of my best compositions!" Who is this guitarist challenging Alopeesha to a duel?

Answer: Pete Townshend

One of the founders of the rock group The Who in 1963, Pete Townshend has written hundreds of songs, including some of the group's iconic hits of the '60s and '70s. Among the numerous songs he penned are 1965's "My Generation". 1967's "I Can See for Miles", 1969's "Pinball Wizard", and 1971's "Won't Get Fooled Again". 1978's ""Who Are You" was composed by Townshend, and became the theme song for TV's "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation". Townshend wrote and composed nearly all of 1969's rock opera "Tommy", with just four of the twenty-four tracks written by someone else. Following his departure from the band in 1983, he continued to write, record and perform, including with The Who upon occasion. Known for smashing his guitar at the end of stage performances, Townshend has used a number of different guitars. And, while he has some treasured instruments, for the most part he regards his instruments basically as tools which enable him to accomplish his goals.

In addition to playing the guitar, he also plays several other instruments, including the mandolin, drums and accordion. And, he taught himself how to play each of them.
