Danny Gatton (1945-1994) - Legendary Charles County, MD, Guitarist - One of the Greatest Guitar Players in History


Recommended Posts

Okay, who was lucky enough to see the legendary Danny Gatton play live?

His reputation is not just local - my Lyft driver in LA not only knew who he was, but put on a recording of Gatton playing after getting *very* excited that I mentioned his name.

Tom Principato talks about Danny Gatton (I've seen Tom Principato play - he's no Danny Gatton, but I *love* his sound and stage presence).

"The Humbler" is a documentary about Danny Gatton in the works. IndieGoGo page.

You can just tell by the way Gatton *perfectly* imitates Chet Atkins - with a super-clean base line accompanying the upper register in two distinct voices - without even trying, that this guy had licks coming out every pore of his body.
