A Song a Day – Day 159

Chet Atkins

Mr Guitar

If you’re still paying attention you’ll have noticed DV has had a change of livery. I’m not sure I’m going to stick with it, but I was ready for a change. Mr Snail there on the front page is a photo taken by my very self of a genuine French snail. He was yummy (just kidding! no animals have been traumatised or eaten in the making of this blog).

The guitar theme continues today. I was tickled to see that Tommy Emmanuel calls himself  Tommy Emmanuel CGP (Certified Guitar Player). He wasn’t the first. That other guitar legend, Chet Atkins was. There are so many Atkins tunes to choose from it’s hard to know which to pick (pick, pick, gerrit?), but I’ve gone for this one, the Don Maclean song Vincent. A beautiful rendition of a beautiful tune.
