Mel Bay presents the much-anticipated second book in the highly acclaimed series that showcases personal insights into the life and music of 'Mr. Guitar.' Chet Atkins was a man of many layers: producer, record executive, friend and one of the greatest all-round guitarist in music history. This book is dedicated to the musicians and songwriters that meant so much to him. Interviews include: Dolly Parton, Steve Wariner, John D. Loudermilk, Mark Knopfler, Paul Yandell, Jerry Byrd, Janis Ian, Boots Randolph, Wayne Carson and many more of Chet's closest friends. As in Volume 1, Chet Atkins in Three Dimensions, Volume 2 provides definitive transcriptions (many for the first time) of 26 of Chet's greatest solos and duets such as 'Gallopin' on the Guitar', 'Liza', 'Muskrat Ramble,' 'Frankie and Johnny,' 'Mister Sandman,' 'Smile,' 'Sweet Georgia Brown,' 'The Early Dawn,' 'The Entertainer,' 'Stump Water,' 'Dark Eyes,' 'Winter Walkin', 'Embraceable You,' the tour de force piece- Jerry Reed's 'Lightning Rod' (a work recorded by Jerry Reed and produced by Chet Atkins) and many other great pieces. Rare photographs, loving tributes and great music are the heart of this wonderful volume - a must for all fans of the guitar.
