When asked who should be in the list of the Top 5 most influential guitarists of all time, most would certainly not deny Chet Atkin’s a place (unless you’ve never bothered to find out who he is). Although his place in the Top 5 is debatable, one thing is for sure: they don’t call him Mister Guitar for no reason. Having won 14 Grammy Awards and recorded, as well as produced in excess of 50 albums, Chet Atkins was the forerunner of expanding the Honky-Tonk sound of Country music into the smooth Nashville genre that still continues to thrive in the Adult Pop charts today. Not only was he an extensive solo artist, but he was well known to collaborate with and manage many other performers from Les Paul, Merle Travis, Jerry Reed, Elvis Presley, Waylon Jennings to Eric Johnson and even John5.


This is taken from my "Chet Atkins, the life and death of" article that I am currently writing for UG. It will appear within a months time. In the meantime, discuss the genuis that is Chet Atkins. He is my personal idol. I have everything he's ever done. It's such a shame he had to leave us.

I like his guitars, not too familiar with his music.

You'll love him Goolz.
I had the honor and privilege of meeting him once. He was a genuinely nice guy. His skill at guitar is unsurpassed.

I like him. I did his arrangement of Vincent for my A-level music practical.

Here's the piece for anyone who hasn't heard it.
Vincent

One of the all-time greatest solo guitar pieces, IMO.

According to #Yeezuz, Kanye West is a god. As if I needed more reasons to be an atheist.
