Chet Atkins was a master in many aspects of the guitar. One of his greatest skills was his uncanny talent of discovering songs which would work as fingerstyle arrangements, and then using his musical genius to forge them into enduring masterpieces. National Fingerstyle Guitar champion Pat Kirtley has assembled a collection of favorites from Chet's Golden Era - some of the best of Chet Atkins' vintage classic tunes -- and teaches you the secrets of how it's done, and how to get the feel of the originals in this double DVD.

Pat chose these tunes, his own favorites from Chet's vast collection, carefully dissecting them and then putting them back together, step by step, so the guitarist can not only learn to play them, but also gets a sense of the feel and history of each unique selection. Pat teaches you note by note and phrase by phrase six of Chet's greatest arrangements. Using split-screen you can study both the left and right hands in detail. A printed tab/music booklet is included as well as a PDF file of the booklet on each DVD.

Every tune here is a winner, a true Chet Atkins classic, and each one is guaranteed to be a standout solo guitar performance piece. These challenging arrangements will provide hours of pleasurable fingerstyle fun as you learn to "pick it like Chet!"
