For a good month now, i've been really into these players - especially Chet Atkins. I love all this Travis-style Picking business. Here are some of my favourite videos [some are uploaded by me]

- I'll See You in My Dreams by Chet Atkins [A Merle Travis cover]
- Dark Eyes by Chet Atkins [A Russian Folk Song]
- Mister Sandman by Chet Atkins [A Patt Ballard Cover]
- Jerry's Breakdown by Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed [A Jerry Reed Song]
- Cannonball Rag by Brad Paisley and Tommy Emmanuel [A Merle Travis cover]
- Make a Mistake with me by Brad Paisley, inspired by Merle Travis

Discuss

I recommend you guys pick up an Album by any of these artists, in particular the older artists like Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Merle Travis and Jerry Reed.

Tommy Emmanuel is mind blowing. I should hopefully be seeing him in November when he comes to Belfast.

Here's another one with Chet and Jerry. It's quite funny to see Chet be so modest where he says he can't play a lot of Jerry Reed tunes, lol.

I love his technique. He's one of the greatest guitarists in my opinion. Thanks Harmy for sending me these albums.
