Subject: RE: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
...geez, well so much for the Christmas gift idea. Chet Atkins' autobiography is evidently a collector's item, now that he's passed. The book is out of print and copies for sale by private individuals range anywhere from $75 to upwards of $200 +. Merle's boxed set is $129.00, but Walkin' The Strings is closer to the average price for a CD, and if the audio snippets are any indication, there's some fine acoustic thumbpicking on there.
