For most of the 20th century, more than any other instrument, the guitar was a symbol of rebellion. Wielded by musicians from all walks of life, it was a weapon used to wage ideological battles, to fight the establishment and light the fires of resistance.
From blues to punk-rock, from rock 'n roll to Tropicália, from folk and protest song to hard rock and grunge, it has been brandished in anger against racial segregation, social injustice, war, dictatorship or conformism in the adult world...
Discover the other story of the most popular instrument through the voices of guitarists such as Wayne Kramer, John Kay, Judy Collins or Lee Ranaldo. This is the story of how six simple strings managed to shake the planet as well as consciences.
