Yea, I think so.
A lot of information about Chet that few are aware. Chet had a big hand in creating the Everly Brothers sound, and that had a hand in influencing The Beatles. Some artists in this vid make the case that Chet redefined how people listen to music. I think it's a valid argument.
There are many artists not cameo'd in this vid who held Chet as an idol, not only as a guitar player but as a person. From the 1950's through the 1970's for sure Chet was it. Kids interested in guitar idolized many of the guitar heroes that came out of the 1970's and forward, but don't know that those guitar heroes were influenced by Chet. George Harrison for example (not in the vid) played a Gretsch guitar because that is what Chet played. George wrote the liner notes for Chet's Picks On The Beatles album.
There are a lot of players that got interested in and learned how to play the guitar in the 70's who were highly motivated by Chet Atkins.
So many that love this man and have him as a hero. Count me in.
Well, let's toss the original in.
