There are great guitar songs, and then there are great songs about guitars. Having a six string on your back will do that to any aspiring or professional musician. Because your axe is not just your passion, it's also your bread and butter, all rolled into one.

B.B. King's Gibson guitar, Lucille, was the most famous of all guitars due to a legendary story about King running into a burning building to rescue her. Many of the world's music legends also wrote amazing songs about guitars, like Chuck Berry's upbeat "Johnny B. Goode" to George Harrison's tear-jearker (with Eric Clapton on lead) "While My Guitar Gently Weeps."
