Les Paul & Chet Atkins: Let’s Take it Slow

Here I go again with the electric thing but I couldn’t resist…

Here’s Les Paul and Chet Atkins with the Limehouse Blues.

I’ve heard this song done so many ways and, I’d say this one

wins for the slowest version ever.

The crawling tempo almost turns this into a different song really,

but it’s Chester and Lester so, it’s still good…


Now at the end of this video, Chet shows off his folding guitar

that he says works well on a plane. To be honest, why would the great

Chet Atkins have a problem in the first place putting one of his guitars

on the plane?
