I have to concur 100%. With all but two of Chet's albums in my collection, there is ALWAYS something to aim at! Like shootin' for the stars. His talent is infinite. And it seems like an infinite roster of licks to shoot for!

But like you, God knows how many thousands of hours hunched over the fingerboard "never becoming Chet", lol! But oh, how we love to try.

For aspiring guitariists, like you and me, Chet's repertoire is the stuff dreams are made of.

I'd like to say that what Chet did seems humanly impossible. By that I mean the 1000 plus recorded arrangements we have of him realistically should have taken him TEN LIFETIMES to master. I have NO IDEA how he did it, except that "God hath layer his hand upon his brow."
