A Tribute To Jerry


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
In my opinion and I think I've heard a lot of music in my lifetime. I think Jerry Reed is amongst the greatest entertainers I've ever heard and seen on TV as for as cool fingerpicking and even singing and writing. Just a power house of talent to say the least ! He is revered by Chet Atkins and most definitely helped him on his way to stardom. I did get a chance to meet Chet before he passed away but not Jerry. It just amazes me his sophistication in the country finger - style guitar ! I really think when it is all said and done Jerry will be way up there in the annals of time when it comes to the best country finger style guitar. He just seemed to push country to a higher level than what it has ever been as for as the art of the fingerpicking guitar and so much more !

Lovely tribute Bill
It has a relaxed feel which I think is perfect for Jerry. And your playing is still pretty darn good. Thanks.

Thanks
I wish I could play the drums though:) This will have to do until a nashville drummer comes a knocking:^) I didn't want to make the bass too busy because I am not a pro bassist either. There is only so much I can do. But I LOVE how Jerry Reed plays and performs and has been a great influence on the kind of music I love to hear. Of course there are other types of music I love, as in your style Maurice (that good time feeling). Is a great type of music that comes in so many styles!

Nice
Nice job of recording, and great articulate playing. Interesting use of the synth mid way through. Has a nice overall laid back feel.

A Tribute To Jerry
Such sweet playing, Bill. So lyrical. You established a great groove and rode it all the way through, too. Jerry (and Chet) would be proud. Nice tasteful backing works, as well. Fine, fine post. Thanks, Peter

Thanks
I really respect Chet Atkins a lot and I know he and Jerry must be pals on the other side! Hopefully promoting the goodness of country music. I am sure they have the ability to uplift country music to new heights ! Thanks again!

A tribute
Clean playing, rolling feel, interesting development in the tune. You are in complete control of the guitar - it all sounds so relaxed and smooth flowing. Nice variety in the sounds you bring in. Thanks for the download!

I thought I'd picked up on this
but no.

Lovely work Bill, part from the excellent playing it's a fine arrangement with clever introduction of electronic instruments.

Cheers

Dick
