Chuck Berry played guitar in the enormous shadow of Charlie Christian.  To some extent, every guitarist, regardless of genre has roots with Charlie.  Compare Berry's guitar work to Christian's and, you'll find Berry pedestrian.  Go to youtube and, listen to the first genius of the electric guitar.  Buddy Rich said of Chick Webb, "He was the daddy of us all."  Guitar?  Daddy is Charlie Christian.
