Our resident ringmaster of mischief, David Quantick, is literally taking it up to 11 (do you see what we did there? Because it's on till 11pm, and...oh, forget it) as he presents the ultimate guide to one of the world's most popular musical instruments.

Sorting the riffs from the raff, the Blagger's Guide will provide an accurately informed, but typically irreverent look at the history of guitars in music; in all its forms. From the delicacy of the Spanish guitar to the epitome of machoness of the Flying V, from the folk starkness of Bob Dylan to the punk thrash of Steve Jones.

Join David Quantick as he verbally dissects great guitarists such as Hendrix and Johnny Marr, and uncovers why the guitar has struck a chord in all our hearts.
