    One of the greatest guitar players ever passed away this weekend.

    He was awesome. It's a shame to suffer with cancer like that. He was definitely one of the greatest pickers ever.

    This man influenced as many, if not more people to pick up the guitar than EVH. Indeed this is a sad loss.

    NO!!!!!!!!!! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/cry.gif[/img] He was one of my guitar heros.

    LeadGtr5150, he was a country singer that was popular back in the 60s and 70s. I didn't listen to him much, but he was one of the best players to pick up a guitar.

    His influence is rooted deep in modern guitar playing. We'll miss you Chet.

    Didn't Eddie record 316 on a Chet Atkins guitar? [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] I wonder if Chet ever knew about that. Doubt it.
