Chet Atkins and the Instruments of Country Music
Offered in conjunction with the Museum´s exhibition, Chet Atkins: Certified Guitar Player, made possible by the Gretsch Company. Additional support provided by GAC. This workshop will focus on lessons learned from Chet Atkins's incredible life, and on the instruments behind country music's sound. A Tennessee native, Atkins rose from an impoverished and sickly childhood to become one of the world’s greatest guitar players and one of country music´s best record producers. The workshop will include sessions by an Chet Atkins expert and a fingerstyle guitar specialist, as well as a guided tour of historic RCA Studio B. Museum educators will highlight lessons from the Chet Atkins teacher’s guide, and the Shapes, Sound Holes & Strings and RCA Studio B curricula.
