CHET ATKINS STYLE ARTIST STUDY


Tutorial by Bobby Howe

Chet Atkins Style Artist Study

Chet Atkins is a legend, a pioneer of a truly original style. In this tutorial, Bobby Howe will teach you some of the elements of this style, all of which are played with the signature Chet Atkins thumb pick and fingerpicking. We'll answer often-asked questions about Atkins: "How do you play the rhythm and melody at the same time?" and "how do you get those fast "banjo rolls"?"

In this tutorial, I'll first introduce the elements of the Chet Atkins style; then for those of you new to fingerpicking, I'll also talk about how to use a thumbpick and fingers. We'll learn two pieces that I wrote - to learn how to play rhythm and melody at the same time - then walk through those pieces measure by measure, looking at both the right and left hands. Finally, we'll walk through several "banjo rolls" with Atkins-style chords.

Disclaimer: These lessons are inspired by the influential guitar style of Chet Atkins. Chet Atkins did not create these lessons and is in no way affiliated with Guitar Tricks®.
