Chet Atkins was a master in many aspects of the guitar. One of his greatest skills was his uncanny talent of discovering songs which would “work” as fingerstyle arrangements, and then using his musical genius to forge them into enduring masterpieces. National Fingerstyle Guitar champion Pat Kirtley has assembled a collection of favorites from Chet’s “Golden Era” – some of the best of Chet Atkins’ vintage classic tunes – and teaches you the secrets of how it’s done, and how to get the feel of the originals in this double DVD.
In Pat Kirtley’s second double instructional DVD on the playing of the legendary Chet Atkins he presents another six great Chet arrangments. Pat carefully dissects each tune and then puts them back together,step by step, so the student can not only learn to play each arrangement, but also gets a sense of the feel and history of each piece. Pat teaches you note by note and phrase by phrase.
