Our Club Heroes

Chester B. Atkins
June 20, 1924 - June 30, 2001

Merle Travis
November 29, 1917 - October 20, 1983

Jerry Reed
March 20, 1937 - Sept 1, 2008

Tommy Emmanuel

We are dedicated to enjoying and preserving the thumb picking finger style guitar music of Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Jerry Reed, and Tommy Emmanuel in and around Ohio.  If we don't promote and support thumb-picking and finger style guitar - it will surely die with us.
