Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed - Live at the Bottom Line Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed - Live at the Bottom Line
Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed in concert together. These two masters of the guitar complemented each other so well that it is hard to imagine one without the other! Chet Atkins, the subdued quiet picker who thrilled at performing the fast, frantic instrumentals written by his energetic alter ego, Jerry Reed. Their careers intertwined for most of forty years. Chet, about 12 years the senior, had perfected his style by the time a young Jerry Reed was being inspired by Chet's records. After getting a start in the music business in his native Georgia, Jerry moved to Nashville in the early 1960's and quickly found work as a session guitarist and songwriter. He attracted the attention of Chet, who by then was an established record producer for RCA, and a prolific recording artist in his own right. Chet "Mr. Guitar" Atkins recognized Jerry's unique ability to write and perform intricate fingerstyle guitar instrumentals and quickly started recording Jerry's tunes on his own albums.

By 1967 Chet had signed Jerry Reed to RCA, and with Chet as producer, Jerry turned out hits like Guitar Man, The Claw and Amos Moses. Jerry's LP, "Explores Guitar Country" produced by Chet, set the stage for their collaboration on two LP's in the 1970's, "Me and Jerry" (Grammy award winner), and "Me and Chet" from which came great tunes like "Jerry's Breakdown" and their definitive version of "Cannonball Rag." Chet continued to feature Reed instrumentals on his albums, and Jerry continued to record and tour while finding time to act in such diverse films as "Smokey and the Bandit" and "The Waterboy."

Chet and Jerry were in the limelight as a duet again in 1992 with another Grammy award winning album, "Sneakin' Around." That CD led to several show dates together, including this performance at the Bottom Line.

Titles include: 1. Lover Come Back To Me 2. Waltz For The Lonely 3. Bye Bye Blackbird 4. Don't Think Twice Its All Right 5. Pushin' 6. Downhome Music 7. Reedology 8. There'll Be Some Changes Made 9. PMS I Guess 10. Hormones 11. Sneakin' Around 12. Georgia On My Mind 13. I Still Can't Say Goodbye 14. Summertime 15. Medley: a) Windy and Warm b) Mister Sandman c) Wildwood Flower d) I'll See You In My Dreams e) Freight Train f) Yakety Axe 16. The Claw 17. Vincent 18. Three Little Words

Chet Rare 76-95 Rare Performances 1976-1995
The long awaited sequel to Chet Rare Atkins Performances video 1955-1975. For more than 40 years, the name of Chet Atkins has been associated with the finest Nashville-based fingerstyle guitar sounds. Even those records he did not play on showed his influence. Yet his own artistic growth never ceased, as is evident in this second volume of Vestapol's chronological documentation of Chet's career. We see this gentle genius exploring the music of Bob Dylan (Don't Think Twice It's All Right), marching band composer John Phillip Sousa (Stars and Stripes Forever), pop standards (Lover Come Back) and progressive funk (Knuckle Busters). Chet's tonal palette draws varied colors from electric guitars, nylon-strung classics, and even a resophonic guitar. Foremost in this collection are his traditional strengths as a tasteful soloist, but we also see him swap licks with the fiery Jerry Reed and Larry Carlton.

The overall impression made by these performances is one of a master quietly demonstrating his continued primacy in his field and doing so with a calm assurance unabated by needless grandstanding. ( - Stefan Grossman )

Titles include: 1976 I'll Say She Does, 1977 Hawaiian Wedding Song 1978 Cascade, Don't Think Twice It's All Right, Kentucky, Stars and Stripes Forever 1979 You Needed Me, Dance With Me 1980 Malaguena 1982 Sukiyaki, Me and Bobby McGee 1987 Knuckle Busters 1991 Sunrise, I Still Can't Say Goodbye 1992 Rainbow, There'll Be Some Changes Made, Yankee Doodle Dixie Medley: Windy & Warm/Mr. Sandman/Wildwood Flower/The Bells Of St. Mary's/In The Good Old Summertime/Freight Train/Yakety Axe, Young Thing 1995 Happy Again, Lover Come Back

Rare Performances Rare Performances 1955-1975
Few names are as synonymous with the guitar as that of Chet Atkins. He set the standard by which generations of country fingerstyle guitarists have benn measured. But his influence transcends regions and genres. The sound of 20th century guitar would not be the same without the impact of this gentle genius who was at the height of his influence and creative powers when the performances presented in this video were captured.

The much travelled "Mr. Guitar" is seen playing in this video collection everywhere from Nashville to Norway. His signature Gretsch Tennesseean guitar, on which Chet made exquisitely effective use of its Bigsby vibrato bar, is heard in all its sweet, reverb-laden glory on many of these clips. But Chet, whose versitility embraces all styles of guitar, is also seen playing a classical model and a Martin dreadnaught. No matter what he plays, the sound produced becomes a distinct auditory fingerprint of the man known in Nashville as C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player). The relaxed mastery evident in this video explains why Chet was honored in 1993 with a Lifetime Achievement Award Grammy: "For his peerless fingerstyle guitar technique, his extensive creative legacy documented on more than one hundred albums, and his influential work on both sides of the recording console as a primary architect of the Nashville sound."

Titles include: Purina Show 1955: The Poor People of Paris, Side by Side, Makin' Believe · Ozark Jubilee 1958: Villa, Say Si Si · Norway 1963: Levee Walking, Wildwood Flower, Yes Ma'am, Malaguena, Medley: Greensleeves/Streets of Laredo, Peanut Vendor, Tiger Rag · Norway (Nashville Cavalcade) 1973: Alhambra, Black Mountain Rag, Medley: The Three Bells/I Can't Stop Loving You/Java/He'll Have To Go/When You're Hot You're Hot/Oh Lonesome Me, Just Another Rag, Mr Bojangles, Missionera, Wheels · Porter Wagoner Show 1973: Muskrat Ramble · Pop Goes The Country 1975: Vincent

The Guitar of Chet Atkins The Guitar of Chet Atkins
Taught by Chet Atkins

"I can't remember when I didn't play the guitar. And I can't remember when playing the guitar didn't lift me up to seventh heaven or thereabouts. Sleeping and eating were never nearly as important to me, and up to the time I was twelve, there wasn't a pretty girl within a hundred miles who looked half as good as my old guitar. Ever since I first heard guitar music, I knew I had to learn to create that sound -- the sound that I thought was the most beautiful music in the world. I still think so."
-Chet Atkins

This video lesson is for intermediate and advanced fingerstyle guitarists. Chet performs and describes in detail, phrase by phrase, the playing of nine of his classic arrangements. An 80 page tab/music booklet is included.

"Someone once asked me to estimate how many guitar lessons I've had in my lifetime," Chet has said. "The answer is simple -- none. There were no teachers in our neighborhood when I was learning. And if there had been I doubt whether they would have taught me with that shabby guitar of mine. But I kept a lookout for any stray 'picker' that wandered into town and if he knew any new runs I would learn them before he left."

You are fortunate -- your teacher for this lesson is one of the foremost fingerstyle guitar masters in the history of the guitar. Have fun!

Titles include: Maybelle, Petite Waltz, Happy Again, Londonderry Aire, When You Wish Upon A Star, Young Thing, Bye Bye Blackbird, Mr. Bo Jangles and Lover Come Back.

"Buster B. Jones is the best fingerpicker I've heard since Jerry Reed. He plays like he's double parked." - Chet Atkins
"Buster B. Jones is an acoustic player, a fingerpicker, a country flavored soloist, and he's one of the finest players we've heard in years... His technique is only a means to an end. His true gifts are his melodic sense, innate musicianship, unfailing human, and brilliant improvisational powers. He can drive a tune with fluid rhythmic force or stroke it with sensuous, loving touch... He's a monster player with chops galore, great ideas and an encyclopedic reservoir of guitaristic influences."
- Guitar Player Magazine
The style of Jerry Reed is a unique blend of syncopated rhythms, banjo-style rolls and brilliant chord voicings that brings a new dimension to fingerstyle guitar. Walking bass-lines, chromatic runs, double-stops and counterpoint melodies are seamlessly joined by Jerry's unique "claw" style right-hand technique which is essential to getting his sound. In this lesson Buster B. Jones teaches you all the necessary elements to play like Jerry Reed.

Titles include: Reedology, The Claw, Jiffy Jam, Jerry's Breakdown, Down Home, Papa's Knee and Lord Mr. Ford.
