Call Jeff Beck a "guitar god" or a "guitarist's guitarist," but he was the only student in the class.

According to a statement made by a spokesperson on behalf of Beck's family, bacterial meningitis was the cause of the legendary guitarist's death on Tuesday. Beck was one of the most celebrated guitarists in rock and roll history. Age-wise, he was 78.

Rock, jazz, blues, soul, and whatever else that attracted Beck's attention could all be played by him. According to Beck, the guitar, or at least how he played it, was a versatile instrument comparable to the voice.

In a 2010 interview, he stated, "I just wanted to become a vocalist." "Because of the spring-loaded bridge, the Stratocaster, especially the guitar Stratocaster, lends itself to countless possibilities. I can depress the vibrato bar, which they call the "whammy bar."

And by changing the pitch, I can create countless variations on that. I have six strings. Therefore I can lower that pitch while playing a chord."

In 1944, Beck was born in Wallington, England. When he was young, he developed a love for the guitar. Playing with Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton in The Yardbirds, he first gained notoriety.

Beck soon quit the group and started The Jeff Beck Group (along with a then little-known singer named Rod Stewart).
