About This Site


I was about 15 years old when I met Chet when he played at the Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena. My parents has some friends that worked for the college there, and I was able to go back stage to meet Chet. I had played for a couple of years and listened to my Dad's "Down Home" album. I must have played "Salty Dog Rag" a million times. I told Chet I loved him, and I was his biggest fan. I remember him being a real nice guy, and he encouraged me to continue playing. This was my life long dream to meet Mr. Chet Atkins. I will always remember him as the one who inspired me to play the guitar.
