    There is a special on PBS channels called “Chet Atkins, Certified Guitar Player”. It is Awesome!!! I don’t know if there was an OFFER to buy that one from PBS, you know like they do sometimes, but if there was, I missed it. Shit! I keep looking for it to pop up again on my 2 local PBS stations so I CAN buy it!

    @rrrrockin Then you’re looking at the wrong kind of industry. There are TONS of great talents out there being recognized as we write.

    Yes, the music might’ve been “better” before, but that does not all music today is utter shit.

    NO ONE WILL EVER MATCH THIS REAL GENIUS, LET ALONE SURPASS HIM. I MET HIM IN A RARE (IF NOT THE ONLY) VISIT TO THE UK IN THE EARLY NINETIES, AND HE SIGNED 2 CD’S FOR ME. I COULDN’T UNDERSTAND HIS SOUTHERN DRAWL, OR HE MY WEST OF ENGLAND ONE. BUT WE SMILED INSTEAD. I LATER ATTENDED HIS OPEN AIR SHOW IN BRISTOL, AND IT WAS UNFORGETABLE.

    @jferone Sorry I got your back up, there! My comment didn’t come out at all the way I intended. (Opposite of “I’d like to have those minutes back”). Been a Chet fan since the early 60’s and have always admired the person as well as the musician. The comment regarding his influence on other guitarists was meant as a compliment, too.

    3 minutes and 44 seconds of my life I’ll never get back – and don’t want to. Saw a comment somewhere on the ‘Net….”everyone who has picked up a guitar in the past 50 years has been influenced by Chet Atkins” Enough said.
