Roy's Bluz Roy Buchanan. There are two very different stories explaining how Buchanan got the guitar.
He himself said that, while enrolled in in a school to learn to be a hairdresser, he ran after a guy walking down the street with that guitar, and bought him a purple Telecaster to trade. A friend of Buchanan's, however, said that Buchanan was playing a Gibson Les Paul at the time, and traded it for the '53 Tele. Buchanan played the Telecaster through a Fender Vibrolux amplifier with the volume and tone "full out," and used the guitar's volume and tone controls to control volume and sound  he achieved a wah wah effect using the tone control.
Buchanan rarely used effects pedals , though he started using an Echoplex on A Street Called Straight Buchanan taught himself various playing techniques, including " chicken picking ".
He sometimes used his thumb nail rather than a plectrum , and also employed it to augment his index finger and pick. Holding the pick between his thumb and forefinger, Buchanan also plucked the string and simultaneously touched it lightly with the lower edge of his thumb at one of the harmonic nodes, thus suppressing lower overtones and emphasising the harmonic, sometimes referred to as pinch harmonics ,  though Buchanan called it an "overtone.
He was famous as well for his oblique bends. Having first played lap steel guitar, Buchanan often imitated its effect and bent strings to the required pitch, rather than starting on the desired note.
