Pretty much anything by Chet Atkins over there. I wonder if they have any Homer and Jethro?

maaaaan that ruled

just posting this one just outta the surprise i'm experiencing at the moment. had no idea steve young's playing approached anything v chopsey (his rhythm drags a little at point or two i think). or anyway always thought of him as more of strummer/songwriter type.
