Brent Mason, Richard Smith “Sugarfoot Rag” Chet Atkins Tribute 2014 – YouTube

Three minutes and 23 seconds of sheer delight.

One thing that’s just beyond impressive: Richard Smith’s right-hand technique. He’s the guy on the left sitting down.  You’d think he’s just petting is dog in as leisurely fashion as you please, in stead of laying down some truly impressive guitar licks.

Along with Brent Mason, Smith engages in one of the finest guitar duels I’ve ever had the privilege to see and hear.

They’re paying tribute to their hero, the wonderful Chet Atkins who pioneered the techniques these very fine musicians use.
