Re: do you carry an acoustic Guitar?


Thanks for the story. I know Tommy said he listened to Chet Atkins records when growing up.

Pretty brave to head over from Australia to Chet's office and ask to see him. I knew they'd hooked up somehow, but that's a surprising way to do it.

How about a little pressure on the guy when trying to relax and play his axe? Good thing he wasn't afraid to take his guitar anywhere he went!

It bears repeating, when I saw him the summer before last, his guitar was the most beat up guitar I've ever seen in my life. He uses it, and it shows in his playing. He puts the "play" in playing, he seems to get every possible sound out of that beat up guitar, doing things I'd never seen done.
