SDShad Obit: Farewell, Chet Atkins.... (1924-June 2001) (83* d) RE: Farewell, Chet Atkins.... 02 Jul 01


You know, I don't think own a single one of the man's albums, but every time his unassuming smile showed up on the tube and those marvelously skilled fingers started to work their magic, I was mesmerized. He has been on my short, short list of favorite guitarists since I was a teenager. I can't believe we won't be seeing that face and those fingers anew ever again. It just ain't sinking in yet. Just trying to find a way to express my reaction and his influence is choking me up. Seems to me a little of his legacy has been passed along to anyone of the last couple of generations who's ever laid hands on a guitar, hoping to make beautiful sounds....damn, damn, damn. Threes, indeed.
