Vincent As played by Chet Atkins on "Read My Licks" Transcribed by Bryan Eggers beggers@dpc.com
This is one of the most beautiful fingerstyle guitar solos ever recorded. These are the notes and approximate rhythms but you should listen to the recording to learn how to play it like Chet does, particularly the slides and hammers.
The fingering is tricky so I added numbers below the staff to indicate how the left hand plays the difficult spots. You'll need to follow this fingering closely, trust me!
Remember to tune your 5th string to G and your 6th string to D.
