A Legend behind Legends, 11 July 2007
Author: Major Tom from Netherlands

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Chet Atkins (C.G.P. = Certified Guitar Player) Played with, composed or produced to many recording artists of whom some of them were real legends. (Like Jim Reeves or Elvis Presley). This documentary gives us a peak in the way Mr. Guitar worked and performed. One of the highlights of this documentary is the 'Live footage' with (an other legend) Les Paul. It gave me a kind of chicken skin to see those two giants perform together. (They recorded some albums as 'Chester and Lester'). Both of them were very important to the development of recording music in general, and guitar music specific. I always recommend this documentary (which I own as a DVD) to any guitar player I meet. The ten points I gave are a signal that there are more documentaries like this one needed.
