Here is "Foggy Bottom", written by Jerry Reed. This tune is from the 2006 album "Let's Git It On". I've been working on and learning dozens of great Jerry Reed compositions in the Berklee "Atkins/Reed Ensemble" led by Rick Peckham.

Tenderly, a lovely ballad written by Walter Gross. This is an arrangement I learned from fingerstyle guitar virtuoso, Richard Smith.
