    I hate the shit people are calling "country" music nowadays, but the classic stuff rocks. Here's Chet Atkins picking on an awesome Gretsch along with one of my other favorites, James Burton. Albert Lee is playing too.



    Feel free to post more videos of music you might like.

    From Fleetwood Mack, right? Definitely a great player. Didn't he also do "Holiday Road" or whatever the song is called from "Vacation?" Everytime I watch that movie, that song plays in my head on a loop for weeks.

    Love Chet. Years ago he told the story about being on vacation with his wife and another couple. The four of them were at a bar in a resort. It had a bandstand with instruments on it, but no group. There was a decent sized crowd at the bar. The other couple talked Chet into going up and playing a song. He finally agreed. He went up to the stage and just blistered one. As he was sitting back down, a man ran over with his hand out for a handshake and gushed "Mister, you are one helluva guitar player! Now, you're no Chet Atkins, but damn you are good."
    Mark Knopfler worshipped the ground Chet walked on.
