Dang, what a review and break-down of what's really going on here. And especially from a young man who more than likely isn't playing this style music when he gigs. Bravo bud.

I love Chet. Any hope of you featuring your take on Albert King or T-Bone Walker? You probably already know that Albert played without a pick. Worked those solos that SRV learned from like he was plucking a bass! :D Keep up your good work. I'm loving your vids

Quick note on jerry reed. After his passing, his daughters told a bit of jerry's playing. Which I found interesting they told on more than one occasion Jerry would sit on their living room couch playing guitar & the family would head to bed for the night & next morning Jerry had never went to bed. Played all night & when his kids came home from school he would still be on the couch playing. Perfecting his art. He had to love it to put such dedication into his picking
Wings of Pegasus (1 day ago)
Yeah that's the kind of dedicated practise it takes!

Jerry and Chet, 'Muleskinner Blues'. Im enjoying your enthusiasm, I dabble a bit as well, can I suggest a few guitarists that interest me. Martin Simpson, saw him live, totally blew me away. Another favourite is Lightnin Hopkins, astounding bluesman, and if you can explain how Skip James plays Crow Jane, id be obliged. :)

When I was in High School 80-81, I spoke with Jerry Reed. He and his family were at a local restaurant by the lake in the small community I live in (Tennessee). A group of us kids went to the restaurant Prom night. As we were leaving we walked up on Jerry and his family, eating. He was so kind. Asked us what we were going...a few other niceties and he told us to have a good time. A good memory.

First off - it is easy. easy hell - it's fun! Jerry ain't breaking a sweat. easy as making music to them. Once I can play that roll with that much accuracy - it'll be easy for me too. For - now - that's gonna take a few weeks of bothering my wife (which btw - I'm SUPER good at), but that rolling beauty of a lick is impossible to play if you listen to the Brit. Virtually everything spoken with a British accent in that video is completely wrong. The thumb pick is totally not a fingernail replacement, but the anchor for the roll and is used as the point melody wile the roll is the drone. The technique is called "playing the Banjo like a freak" and playing on a Banjo is an "American " thing. That is, every American is taught at a very early age that the knee is where the Banjo is found - at least in Alabama, and is the funnest damn thing to play if you can play it - seriously -ridiculously happy instrument. What Jerry is doing is adapting the banjo technique for the guitar by bringing the fingertips around (that position is created by the sideways thumb) and rolling the fingers like scratching a cat or a mule or whatever they scratch in Alabama. The usual fingertip picks worn on the Banjo-fingers are not used (because crap sounds like that on a guitar). The difference? no pinching or popping like a chicken-picker. The hand plays a very smooth rolling pattern that is fast as hell but is non-syncopated it is not a fingerpicking style - it is a Banjo playing style. I love the British. You can always tell a Brit - but you can't tell them much. I kid of course. not kidding. no, I kid. What is Chet doing - he's being awesome

You touch on the temperament of quality pickers. As insanely expert as they are, you really don't get a sense they are OVER-playing. There are a LOT of highly talented pickers in bluegrass music. Let me drop a few names of pickers to you so that you can check them out: Marty Stuart - Absolutely incredible natural talent. Here he is as a kid playing mandolin. His talent translated to guitar as well. https://youtu.be/t5k2TSyvUa4 Ricky Skaggs - Here he is as a seven year old on one of the biscuit hour shows. This one featured Skruggs and Flatt. Take note at how cool Earl and Lester letting a kiddo top out. https://youtu.be/Oh0Py4fNRqc Through the magic of the entertainment industry here are both pickers all grown up, and, once again, playing mandolin. https://youtu.be/pCKx-dYSAEM Then there is James Burton, who stands as the country-cross-over genesis man. You can't really call it rock and roll when he refers to it as "chicken pickin'" https://youtu.be/pJVyZ5vD5vU

Jerry was not just a guitar player he was a guitar thinker, he has written and played numerous instrumental guitar pieces that have been as profound to thumbpickers as stairway to heaven (et al) has been to rock guitarists. In fact chet atkins has covered many songs written by Jerry He was also a great song writer too, Elvis covered his song: U S Male (and the session guys couldnt work it out so Jerry was called in) and he wrote and played the smokey and the bandit theme, he is an absolute legend.

chet was always known as the best.. few men would chet sit down and play with that he felt challenged him...jerry did.. chet loved jerry and said many times how Jerry impressed him and pushed him.. Jeff beck was right as the best are in Nashville if there is such a thing however few now the caliber of these men as they had techniques hard to duplicate and the right hand has much to do with it.. we only know " the best" from what we have seen from those that " made it." however some of these kids now will be better than any... very impressed with these babies coming up...

Have you ever considered analyzing Phil Keaggy. I would love to hear your response to him. I recommend Phil's acoustic video "Who'll Speak Up For The Little Ones" And him playing electric on the video called "Time HD". By the way when he sings he sounds just like Paul McCartney. And is personal friends with him as well. Phil tells of being invited to Chet's home to play with him. Only the best get invited there!!!!!

I love your commentary on this video, it’s refreshing to see someone from a rock/heavy metal background appreciate the talent in these country artists. Jerry Reed was amazing for sure! If I could choose one famous person to just sit and have a beer with it’d be Jerry! (RIP) Any chance you could analyze Junior Brown? I’ve seen him live 3 times and he is one of the greatest guitar plays alive, in my opinion.

Dear Phil. Here is what I appreciate,...seeing a guitarist/musician watch videos of these country music greats, with childish joy & delight on his face. Let's face it musicians are some of the most arrogant people on the planet. I'm not a guitarist, but I do spend time reading comment sections of guitarists posting their opinions,...and it can be mind boggling due to the harshness that lives on the web. You ARE a guitarist, but you're watching wide eyed, as if you're seeing something amazing,...for the very first time. It speaks well of your spirit.

One of the greatest nights ever was when I sold one of my Manuel Rodriguez' to a guy on CL local and went to his house to finish the sale. I never really listened to or appreciated Chet or Jerry before that time. The guy was completely blind and his wife was saying how much he was looking forward to the guitar and hoped he could of course test it out for a few minutes as anyone would. I thought, yeah ok, here we go this is going to be funny. He played the most the beautiful Chet Adkins, Jerry Reed and other chicken pickin ever. After about 5 or 6 hours, I left humbled and a changed man.

Jerry Reed is The Keith Moon of Guitar. I thought he was just a joker when I was a wee lad. I watched this stuff on TV with my parents & thought he was a comedian. Look at the hat! Great commentary about them being entertainers & making it look easy. That's entertainment. Chet Atkins? He's Chet Atkins. I am influenced by him & don't even know it!!! Killer stuff.

I was brought up with a guitar. Dad was a jazz guitarist, very similar to Chet's style. I recall being with him when he appeared at the London Palladium after his trio (The Trichords) won the Top Of The Bill. Dad introduced me to Lonnie Donican, Val Doonican and the Bee Gees, In fact the Bee Gees were running late and coming into a hot theater after sitting in a cold and drafty van their guitar was way out of tune and they were close to changing the program rather than go on with an out of tune guitar. Dad grabbed the guitar and quickly tuned it whilst the boys were getting ready. They then asked him to retune it when they came off so it was ready for their 2nd bracket. Unfortunately I never did learn guitar, but thankfully I inherited Dad's ear for music. Dad later went on to master multi tracking and often played with Wout Steenhuis. I've been trying to track down some of the musos Dad played with, In the UK he used Bill Evans and when he moved to Australia he went by Bill Kent. He was also the first professional guitarist to be signed up by the British Army. So if anyone who played with him reads this I'd love to hear from you..
