Discussion of history's greatest guitar player.

Our hero

Postby BillB » Mon Apr 30, 2018 7:37 pm

I was just watching an interview (by rock star Sammy Hagar) with guitarist & songwriter, Mick Jones, of the rock group, Foreigner. Sammy asked him who he thought was the greatest guitarist of all time, and he quickly said, "Chet Atkins." Kind of caught Sammy Hagar by surprise, but it made an impression on him.

Just wanted to share that with my fellow Chet-nuts.

Bill, not only was I surprised at his answer, but also by the fact that there was no hesitation!

Nice to know that some of these players who didn't play Chet's style (or anything close to it) are recognizing the undeniable TRUTH that we Chet guys have known all along.

Many were great, but Chet's mountain of accomplishment and skill on the instrument will NEVER be equaled. No one has ever come close. Only ONE Mr. Guitar!
