Product Overview


The legendary Chet Atkins conferred the initials "c.g.p." (Certified Guitar Picker) on only four players. One of those to be so honored was his close friend and picking buddy, Steve Wariner.

On this richly detailed lesson, the multiple GRAMMY-winning country music star pays heartfelt tribute to his mentor. He teaches ear-catching original compositions and finger-challenging arrangements that incorporate trademark elements of Chet's unique style and technique.

Steve also explores the Merle Travis/Chet Atkins thumb-picking style in Leavin' Luttrell and John Henry, teaches a swinging tribute to Jerry Reed (a close friend to both him and Chet) in Reeding Out Loud, and imparts the beauty and sensitivity of Chet-inspired arrangements for his hit songs I'm Already Taken, Holes in the Floor of Heaven and Two Teardrops.

Steve Wariner's historical insights, his intimate knowledge of the secrets of Chet's picking techniques, and his own impeccable playing, make this lesson a treat for any fingerstyle guitarist who's looking for new sounds and directions.

It’s finger-pickin’ good!

Good Deal

It couldnt be more perfect than learning directly from the artist, the accuracy is assured. Steve does not explain every finger position on every chord but by watching closely & taking it slow, I am getting it . I have been playing fingerstyle for a few years & have some chord knowledge. As a beginner, this would have been over my head. At my current intermediate level, its great.
