Chet Atkins Lyrics

Mr. Sandman
by Pat Ballard

This transcription is based on Chet Atkinsı arrangement as heard on: Chet
Atkins- Guitar Legend- The RCA Years.  I have included the section in ³A²
that he starts with and the section in ³D² that he ends with, leaving out
the ³C² section that he plays with piano accompaniment.   I am sure there
are notes missing, but listen to the recording and you can fill in.  This is
fun to play and a real crowd pleaser with the instantly recognized intro
riff.  Thanks Chet.
