Guitar Inspirations

My guitar heroes tend to be fingerstyle players: Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Maybelle Carter, Pete Seeger, Paco de Lucia, Guy Van Duser, Leo Kottke, Juan Serrano and many others.
Chet has to be regarded as the world’s most versatile guitarist for his brilliance in every genre of music: classical, rock, blues, country et al. So, let’s start with him._MG_3759
