CD Reviews

Some of Chet's very best "patented" fingerstyle guitar
Richard K. Hudson | Ardmore, OK USA | 07/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There will never be another Chet Atkins. No one has ever earned the respect of guitar players from every field from all over the world the way Chet has. "Stringing Along With Chet Atkins" was the first Chet album I bought as a young boy. Chet put his personal touch on every tune starting with "O' By Jingo." The almost inhuman dexterity of Chet's right hand along with his unique ability to move down the neck of the guitar from one chord position to another, using open strings to tie it all together as only he could do it, will keep the most critical spellbound. From there it only got better with the 3/4 and 4/4 mixture on "Alice Blue Gown," and the silky smooth, very tastefully done "Hello Ma Baby," to the lightning fingered duel with Jethro Burns on the mandolin in "Gallopin' Guitar," and also "Main Street Breakdown." Chet along with Homer and Jethro was an unbeatable combination. The musical comedy team of Homer and Jethro were surprisingly good musicians in their own right. Of course Jethro was Chet's brother-in-law. All of the rest of this two-disc combination set is fingerstyle guitar at its best. It just doesn't get any better than this. If you ask real Chet afficianados which is their favorite Chet album, most will say either "Finger Style Guitar" or "Stringing Along With Chet Atkins." This is an unbeatable deal to be able to get these two classics in one set. Long live the legacy of this remarkable gentleman from east Tennessee known the world over as "Mr. Guitar.""
