In a 1969 episode of Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, the eponymous host ended the concert section of his show with the Chet Atkins guitar adaptation of Boots Randolph‘s song “Yakety Sax“, affectionately entitled “Yakety Axe“. Campbell impressively shredded the song at lightning speed without missing a single beat.
We usually end the concert section with a banjo tune, but tonight we’re gonna play one of Chet Atkins’ and Boots Randolph’s favorites called “Yakety Sax”.
