Willie D. Warren was one of Detroit's all-time greats. He played in bands with Otis Rush and Freddie King and taught Guitar Slim how to play the guitar more than 50 years ago. It is also said that he was the first to play electric bass by tuning down the first four strings on his guitar. In later years, he was known for playing his 12-string hollow-body electric guitar with only six strings.
