Product Description

Doyle Dykes is one of the premier fingerstyle guitarists in the world. When guitar great Chet Atkins was asked a few years ago who he'd pay money to go see, his answer was, "People like Doyle Dykes, who is just an amazing fingerpicker, I think." He has thrilled secular and church audiences all over the world, from the Grand Ole Opry to Knebworth House in Hertfordshire, England (home of the some of the most famous rock concerts in history) to Shanghai, China; James' Burton's International Guitar Festival, Saddleback Community Church, and Harvest Christian Fellowship.

But this audiobook, read by Doyle,  isn't just about his life as a guitar player. Infused into stories like how he was invited to be part of the Stamps Quartet (Elvis' backup band), why a white rose is on the headstock of his signature-model guitar, and how his worst night at the Opry turned out to be anything but, are accounts of the remarkable ways God has shown up in Doyle's life. His warm, engaging style will draw you into each chapter--and you'll finish the book having been inspired, feeling like Doyle is a new friend, and never viewing God the same way again. Includes DVD with additional music by Doyle including the single Lights of Marfa.

Endorsements

Doyle's book, as well as his exceptional ability on the guitar, is an expression of how he walks the talk and gives to others without holding anything back. We are all blessed as he shares his life and talent with us. When I grow up I want to be just like Doyle (and play like him too). ~ Roy Clark, grammy-award winning member of the Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame

Doyle is a great man of God whose book warms our hearts with his gentle ways, uplifts us with his strong faith, and . . .  oh, yeah, he also plays guitar very well!!! We love you Doyle. ~ Tommy Emmanuel, Guitarist, composer, CGP, and certified Doyle fan!

This book by my favorite guitarist is as captivating as Doyle's music. ` Rick Warren, Senior Pastor, Saddleback Church

Doyle is the type of person you meet for five minutes and you feel you have been friends for a lifetime. You'll find his stories equally captivating and heartwarming. ~ Eric Johnson, Platinum selling, Grammy award winning artist
