I saw Tommy back in November. My second time. And the most wondrous thing I take away from the shows is not his technical prowess - its the joy that emanates from the man.

Well if you could play like that youd be pretty feckin joyful
And if you did get a little depressed have a look at the bank account and joy comes flooding back

Youre not short of a bob or two with all your skullduggery up there in New York though





I can take or leave him , hes a little like watching those soccer kids who can kee the ball up all day and catch it behind their head etc. Or the guy with the yo yo


Im not sure what I think of him to be honest and Ive never been one for instrumentals .... I like a song
But I do swoon at his skills no doubt

I've seen him 3 times in Atlanta. I've always said even if your not into that style of music you will still walk away from a Tommy show feeling like you've been entertained. The guy has amazing energy and presence on stage.

Exactly! His style is not something that really appeals to me, but his playing skill and joy at what he does are absolutely infectious.

Tommy E. is the kind of guy that makes guys like me want to take up needle point, and just put the friggen guitars away for a while..

He is amazing.

Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Glen Campbell, Jerry Reed, Brad Paisley.....IMHO Tommy Emmanuel is possibly the GOAT!

I finally figured out what "The Bomb" is.

greatest of all time

I'm not sure any guitarist can claim that title. Too many variations.

Some long time ago, when "Oh, Brother..." came out,a few of us went to the touring production and got to see and hear Jerry Douglas as well as a long roster of other bluegrass players. After one of his blazing solos a friend and I turned to each other, and, in unison said- "F--- off!" He plays stuff faster than I can hear. And it's beautiful.He's the real deal.

I would have to put Chet Atkins in the discussion of great finger style players as well as maybe Mark Knopfler

I always enjoyed watching and listening to Chet Atkins play. Tommy is completely in a different world.
