Guitar of Chet Atkins

  • Chet Atkins

I can’t remember when I didn’t play the guitar. And I can’t remember when playing the guitar didn’t lift me up to seventh heaven or thereabouts. Sleeping and eating were never nearly as important to me, and up to the time I was twelve, there wasn’t a pretty girl within a hundred miles who looked half as good as my old guitar. Ever since I first heard guitar music, I knew I had to learn to create that sound — the sound that I thought was the most beautiful music in the world. I still think so. Chet Atkins

This DVD lesson is for intermediate and advanced fingerstyle guitarists. Chet performs and describes in detail, phrase by phrase, the playing of nine of his classic arrangements. An 80 page tab/music booklet is included.

Someone once asked me to estimate how many guitar lessons I’ve had in my lifetime, Chet has said. The answer is simple — none. There were no teachers in our neighborhood when I was learning. And if there had been I doubt whether they would have taught me with that shabby guitar of mine. But I kept a lookout for any stray ‘picker’ that wandered into town and if he knew any new runs I would learn them before he left.

You are fortunate — your teacher for this lesson is one of the foremost fingerstyle guitar masters in the history of the guitar. Have fun!

Titles include: Maybelle, Petite Waltz, Happy Again, Londonderry Aire, When You Wish Upon A Star, Young Thing, Bye Bye Blackbird, Mr. Bojangles and Lover Come Back
