The Entertainer: Chet Atkins

in Acoustic

One of my favorite guitar players who’s not only a master at his instrument, but a musician who didn’t believe in being labeled with a genre. From all the videos I’ve seen of him or the interviews I’ve read, the fact that he could delve into any style with such ease didn’t make him think of himself as special. Beg to differ.

I see guitar players who put on an attitude like they’re masters of the universe and have a fraction of Atkins’s talent. The other person I can think of who’s like that is Les Paul. I’ll post something with the two of them tomorrow. Meanwhile.
