    Janet's post got around to Chet Atkins - maybe it was and maybe it wasn't! ;) - but I wanted to post this. The picking is AMAZING.

    Just to have him on TV in color in 1954 was quite a tribute!

    Holy Moly! I know that guy!!!!:holymoly:

    Ok, so I had to picture him a bit older than that, but yeah. I went to one of the 70's videos. He used to play that a lot. It's one of Mom's favorites. I just used to love to listen to him play that guitar.

    OMG how weird is that??

    Wow! I'm surprised to see that little film clip is in COLOR! My ex's mom worshipped the ground that Chet Atkins walked on! She was some kind of fan club president or something. My ex remembers meeting him when he was just a kid and going to a studio with his mom to sit and watch while they were recording.
