Just wanted to thank-you guy's for all the time and effort in keeping the Chet Board current. I hope this will encourage participation by the many member's who only read the comments of the few. Us "old timer's" will just have to learn and keep up with our grandkids HA HA HA Thanks again for the great job.

writing a book on 'The Guitar'

Hello,

As a longtime fan of Chet Atkins and his music, and as a 'Enthusiastic Novice on the guitar, I thought I would write a book (Without re-inventing the wheel - of course). Thhis will be aimed at folks who haven't yet even picked one up -yet, and I hope it will encourage them. Notes also on the top players - guess who's No 1 - and so far I have bios of 36.
There may well be more. Anyone any comments. Yours, Kevin Webb JP (England)

I believe Paul said Chet was nevrer fussy about it. Any well made cable suited him.

Some forums will argure that you get the best tone out of some of those high dollar cables but common sense says the difference between one of those or a less expensive but well made cable has got to be questionable. Long cables tend to cut your highs and twenty feet seems to be about the limit on high impedance (which is what most guitar pickups are) pickups cable length.

So it would seem that a well made cable of fifteen feet or less would give you the better spectrum of tone delivered by the pickups.

What defines a "well made cable"? One that is well sheilded, meaning you get a minimum of hum when you use it.
