I love 'em. Just got a greatest hits and I enjoy every single song.
Here's a little known secret about "Bye Bye Love". In addition to Chet Atkins playing the lead guitar licks on the track, there was a total of 6 acoustic guitars. Phil played with a regular tuning, Don played with an open tuning, and the other four guitarists played with capos at various positions on the necks of their guitars. Keep in mind they played live in the studio, no overdubs. Many guitarists in that era were baffled because they couldn't duplicate the sound they heard, not realizing how many guitars were involved.
Let's hear it for Don Everly, too. Don was a true rhythm guitarist, who played off of the drummer and bassist, much the same way Lennon did in the Beatles. Today's rhythm guitarists should really be called "strummers".
