"My first knowledge of Marcel Dadi came around 1973. Here was a guitarist who despite thousands of miles had figured out what it was all about." – Chet Atkins
"Marcel Dadi is a master of the guitar styles of Merle Travis, Jerry Reed and Chet Atkins." – Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine
In this unique series of DVD lessons Marcel Dadi presents the guitar arrangements of Merle Travis, Jerry Reed and Chet Atkins. These three titans of the guitar have defined and established country fingerstyle guitar. Their influence on the music and players of Nashville and beyond over the last fifty years is without bounds. Each has his own distinct approach, sound and style.
"I try to play their music note-for-note," said Marcel. "They are so good -- how could you do better? They are the best in their fields. If you play a tune by Chet Atkins, you should play it like Chet Atkins. The same for Merle and Jerry... If you want to teach this style of guitar playing you have to be as close as possible to what the original musician was playing."
Titles include: Windy and Warm, Drive In, Cheek To Cheek, Three Little Words by Chet Atkins along with Jerry Reed's Blue Finger and Merle Travis's Rose Time.
