Understand Your Man cover(CHET ATKINS)-VIDEO

Postby Spadaro Paolo » Mon Dec 22, 2014 12:16 pm

Hello everyone ............

This time, I will share with you my cover of "UNDERSTAND YOUR MAN" by Johnny Cash.
The arrangement for guitar as you know, is one of Chet In His Album of 1965 "MORE OF THAT COUNTRY GUITAR", (one of my favorites).
I used (not without inaccuracies) my acoustic Taylor 814ce.
The backtrack is made by myself using band in a box.

Hope you like .........

MERRY CHRISTMAS from ITALY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello, Paolo.

That was really nice, Paolo. I like your thumb. That is about the first thing that catches my attention when I hear anyone play this style, and you have a good snap to it. Sounds good. The Taylor has a nice tone. Beautiful guitar.

I'm really honored to these compliments. Thank You LEN !!!

I was trained well, I had the good fortune to meet a teacher who introduced me to the real music (my influences range from Wes Montgomery, Baden Powell, Django Reinhardt and many others, and this is not so obvious for my generation and above in Italy !!!!!). As a child, however, I was very impressed, by the sound, the technique and the arrangements of Chet Atkins (my hero), I never get tired of listening to his songs and I enjoy it so much to replicate these;
I love the sound of guitars, especially the sound, that of my GRETSCH 6122-1959 perfect replica of the one used for years by Mr. Atkins.

The Chet Atkins convention???? It would be a dream, all the best guitarists in the world gathered together, beautiful !!!!!! It is not a straightforward task given the considerable distance, but never say never ..................

Thanks again !!!!!

Ciao, PAOLO.
