Love the Stars and Stripes, and this, along with the John Williams version, is one of my favorites.

Proof that if you're Chet Atkins, you don't need an entire orchestra!

Thaat was a lovely video of Mr Atkins. I had forgotten how really nifty his personality was in addition to his fabulous musical talents. He had that little sweet sense of humor.

Thanks for the memories!

Sent that link to my guitar playing son in Indianapolis. He listened to Chet and then suggested that we combine our guitars and use the wood for kindling at the next family bonfire.

I've heard Van Duser play it. Chet's version is great as well. Thanks for the link and the uplift.
