    This is a fabulous tribute to Chet Atkins produced by Gretsch featuring Doyle Dykes, John Knowles, Steve Wariner and others.

    Filmed in the legendary RCA Studio B, I believe! I was so very happy to tour the studio when my wife and I visited Nashville in 2016.

    I think I've caught myself watching that clip all the way to the end, each time it's been posted here :p

    Quite a historic gem!

    I think if Chet ever missed something it was him not making Doyle Dykes a CGP.
