Mel Bay presents the much-anticipated second book in the highly acclaimed series that showcases personal insights into the life and music of 'Mr. Guitar.' Chet Atkins was a man of many layers: producer, record executive, friend and one of the greatest all-round guitarist in music history. This book is dedicated to the musicians and songwriters that meant so much to him. Interviews include: Dolly Parton, Steve Wariner, John D. Loudermilk, Mark Knopfler, Paul Yandell, Jerry Byrd, Janis Ian, Boots Randolph, Wayne Carson and many more of Chet!s closest friends. As in Volume 1, Chet Atkins in Three Dimensions, Volume 2 provides definitive transcriptions (many for the first time) of 26 of Chet!s greatest solos and duets such as Gallopin on the Guitar, Liza, Muskrat Ramble, Frankie and Johnny, Mister Sandman, Smile, Sweet Georgia Brown, The Early Dawn, The Entertainer, Stump Water, Dark Eyes, Winter Walkin, Embraceable You, the tour de force piece- Jerry Reed's Lightning Rod (a work recorded by Jerry Reed and produced by Chet Atkins) and many other great pieces . Rare photographs, loving tributes and great music are the heart of this wonderful volume-a must for all fans of the guitar.

  • March 20, 2009 Some of Chet's tricks are so simple it's unreal.

    Having been a fan of Chet Atkins for well over 40 years and having played the guitar for even longer I thought it was about time I found out exactly how the master himself went about it. Some of his tricks of the trade are so simple it is unbelievable...

    ... an excellent book and one that I can most certainly recommend to anyone who just like me wondered how he did it. Sad he is no longer with us.

  • August 08, 2008 Very Inspiring and Influential

    Very inspirational. The man, AND the music. This book (Vol II) along with Volume I, have inspired me to to broaden my skills toward becoming proficient in this style of music. So much so, that I went and bought thumbpicks, put my solid body guitar up for sale, and am...

    now about to buy a Gretsch, and a good electric-classical.

  • April 10, 2007 Nice but hard...

    This is for hardcore Chet fans. Some nice storys about Chet mixed with some accurately tabbed (as far as i can tell) Chet tunes.
