That was truly fantastic.
Now acquiring some Chet Atkins, Les Paul & Mary Ford, and Les Paul & Chet Atkins.
Being so young, I didn't know that he invented/developed so much! He truly changed the music industry in a positive way. It's amazing the way he made his first electric guitar, his thought process. The shape and thickness they used to be (almost acoustic like), and the way he and his wife (Mary Ford) used to travel, recording in different hotels and houses (with the tape recorder he made) to get different acoustics, something no artists would have any understanding of now.
Loved his wifes voice when they sampled it on the tape recorder... After 30mins I was into this older music sound (if you see what I mean... Tape hiss, "bad" recording, tinnier) and I loved it from then on in...
