Beck could play rock, jazz, blues, soul, and anything else that piqued his interest. The guitar, or at least how Beck played it, was a versatile instrument comparable to the voice, according to Beck.

I can use the vibrato bar, also known as the "whammy bar." And by changing the pitch, I can make infinite variations on that. I've got six strings. As a result, I can lower the pitch while playing a chord."
