Default La Vie En Rose (Chet Atkins)

Hello,

Here's my take on Chet Atkin's arrangement of La Vie En Rose. Played with my Taylor 314 nylon guitar. Hope you enjoy it!

My favourite version remains the one Grace Jones did, but this is very nice too

Did you work off a score or did off a recording of Chet's playing?

Thanks very much! Glad you liked it. One of my favourite of Chet's arrangement. Actually all of Chet's arrangements are my favourite.
