Windy and Warm

The instrumental “Windy and Warm” was written by John D. Loudermilk for Chet Atkins, who recorded it in 1961. It was very popular and became something of a signature tune for Atkins.

Versions from 1963 also exist by the Ventures and the Spotniks and from 1966 by Doc Watson. Really more of a fingerpicker than surf rock, it remains a popular acoustic guitar solo today.

My arrangement is, in feel,  more along the lines of the Chet Atkins original, although I play it on my Gretsch (Chet Atkins) electric using a pick.
