The relaxing guitar instrumental sounds of Chet Atkins


Chet Atkins was a guitar virtuoso who could play just about any song or genre and master it without even really trying. I am doing this mytake to expose you to the talent of this man and hopefully you will find his music relaxing and enjoyable as I do. Here are a few of my favorites.

Mrs. Robinson

Orange Blossom Special


Heart of Glass

Sweet Caroline

Ode to Billy Joe

Battle of New Orleans

Yakety Axe (Benny Hill Theme)

Windy and Warm

And finally Limbo Rock

Yes, Chet was very versatile where he could play with the best of Symphony Orchestras or the most country of songs. he covered a lot more than this,but this is just a sample of his genius. I invite you to plug in your headphones and let this music take you away on a journey fueled by guitar strings.

    He did an entire album with Mark Knopfler. (Lead guitarist for Dire Straits)
    I read his book. He said he was very poor growing up. He once broke a guitar string on his crappy guitar. So he pulled a wire out of his mom's screen door, and used that. He said he hated sports, but he kind of liked watching the cheerleaders! lol
