John shares loads of stories about working with & being mentored by Chet Atkins, growing up the son of a preacher, and the impact this had on him… and a great story how he gave up his original academic career as a physicist working for Texas Instruments, to play classical acoustic guitar, instead. GREAT stories here, from a bright, lifelong career musician:
