You are one of the rare ones that use the Bigsby properly. I see so many other players o nyoutube seem to almost be afraid to use it when it was so much a part of Chet's sound over the years. Ya done good. You got all the little bells and whistles....

Thanks Spencer. That was always one of my favorite Chet Atkins arrangements. I think that harmonic stuff especially the harmonic with chord stuff was pure genius especially for that day (don't know exactly when). You made it look easy. I never had any idea how do do it until maybe now. Loved it!

Pretty sure the album was called "Chet Atlins Finger Style Guitar" and it came out in 1961,And your right Sheer genius for the time!

Looks like you have the re-issue Spencer. Same album different cover. Chet actually played the guitar on the first album cover, the red one, on the recording.

Chuck has it right

I think the 'walnut finished guitar' is his fabled '59 photographing darker than usual. It does the same thing on his Hymns album.

I kind of figured it was a reissue,thanks for setting me straight. Now I have to look for the original album! I don't have that cover.
Thanks Spencer.......
