Sunday Music: Chet Atkins Picking On The Beatles

Chet Atkins is a guitar person’s guitar person.

His instrumental takes on the Beatles take my brain into another room and focuses it. 

I know, I know – it’s the Beatles composition at the core, but hearing how he re-arranges these and chooses his tone, when to use chords, when to bend notes – it’s mesmerizing.  

Listen to the whole album, but if you want 2 highlights, here’s “And I Love Her” and “She Loves You.” h/t @listensessions1
