         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.
