A TRIBUTE TO YACKETY SAX

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 “Yackety Sax“, affectionately entitled “Yackety 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 “Yackety Sax”.

The song may sound familiar as it was used quite often throughout the run of the The Benny Hill Show
