Chet Atkins and Les Paul teamed up on the album “Chester and Lester” in 1976. The guitar giants won a Grammy that year for Best Country Instrumental Performance.

Chet coaxed Les out of retirement to record the album, much of which was live in the studio with little overdubbing. It’s still a great album to listen to 40 years later.

Watch the two play “The Birth of the Blues” in the video below.

It’s terrific to hear these two legends perform together. This duo definitely are Guitar Greats!

Share if you are a FAN of Les Paul and Chet Atkins!
