Los Angeles' guitarist Johnny Watson was perhaps the first guitarist to use the reverb and the feedback as musical elements. He redefined blues music with the avantgarde Space Guitar (1954), backed with the novelty Half Pint Of Whiskey, I'm Getting Drunk (1954) and Gangster Of Love (1956), backed with One Room Country Shack. His canon was one of the most impressive of his era, or, for that matter, of any era, embodied in singles that few people heard but many guitarists would imitate for decades: Hot Little Mama/ I Love To Love You (1955), Don't Touch Me/ Too Tired (1955), Give A Little/ Oh Baby (1956), Ruben/ Three Hours Past Midnight (1956), Love Me Baby/ She Moves Me (1956), Deana Baby/ Honey (1958), The Bear/ One More Kiss (1959), I'm Gonna Hit That Highway.

In the 1970s he converted to funk music (I Need It, 1976).
