I know what you’re thinking, this is a Fender blog and Sister Rosetta Tharpe is playing a Gibson!
Well that may be true, but there’s a Telecaster on the chair there, and it’s too good a picture not to post.
When it comes down to it a guitar’s a guitar and we wouldn’t be playing what we’re playing today without Sister Rosetta inventing Rock n Roll.
Chuck Berry? Little Richard? Totally important, but Sister Rosetta Tharpe was doing it before them, and being a huge influence on them both.
