The Music of Chet Atkins

Born: June 20th, 1924  / Died: June 30, 2001

Official Site: Mister Guitar

Hailing from Luttrell, Tennesse and reaching the finest stages of the world Chet Atkins managed to impact the entire school of thought concerning the playing of the guitar. From simple acoustic strumming to the most complicated, syncopated finger style picking you could ask for Chet delivers it all with a grin on his lips and a slight smile in his eyes. He was equally adept in the studio whether it was in front of the microphone or behind the recording console. He produced many fine sessions for a long list of players and released a large stack of his own records. He had a long relationship with Gretsch resulting in many new innovations and styles before moving on to Gibson. As an owner of a 1967 Gretsch Tennessean I can vouch for Chet's taste and his fine set of ears when looking for "just that sound". The guitar world misses you Chester....
