Lester William Polfuss, known as Les Paul (June 9, 1915 – August 13, 2009[1]) was an American jazz guitarist and inventor. He was a pioneer in the development of the solid-body electric guitar which "made the sound of rock and roll possible."[2] His many recording innovations included overdubbing, delay effects such as "sound on sound" and tape delay, phasing effects, and multitrack recording. He is often credited as being the 'father of modern music'.

Here's Les Paul doing his signature version of How High the Moon.

and here he is with his wife Mary Ford doing the same tune with Mary on vocals. All the guitar parts are Les Paul and all the vocal tracks are Mary Ford. He was a genius with overdubbing and multi tracking. This was well before these techniques became daily occurrences in studios. He was the man.
