Chet Atkins + Johnny Cash=

I have just uploaded my first YouTube video!  It’s my Chet Atkins style arrangement of the Johnny Cash classic, “Folsom Prison Blues.”  Putting that alternating bass with the melody is tricky, but playing the tune is a blast!  Give me some feedback and let me know if you like the classic country mashup.

    Very nice playing. Great instrumental of a great song. I much prefer instrumentals but I guess when you got Cash singing its like another instrument. Really like that ending too.
