Great!

But as much as I love Jerry D., I just love TE solo. He has been doing lots of playing with other people lately - maybe he is sick of playing solo? He has been travelling and playing alone for a long, long while.

Now guitar talk! I want a TE Personal, as his guitars are called! They are made in the Maton Custom Shop, who probably fear TE's Monday morning calls! (I could say: "I want, I want , I want, I want", as I stamp my feet in a tantrum, but no good would come of it!

You can also get a 'commercial' TE model, which I have played and also want [biggrin] It would be interesting to compare my Maton SRS808, (Australian Blackwood with Cedar) to the Maton EBG808TE (Queensland Maple with Sitka - Queensland Maple is absolutely not one thing like US Maple - Maton used it as a Mahogany sub for years).

Unfortunately, the Custom Shop TE models are rare as hen's teeth and the shops always say 'Coming Soon' and they don't....previously earmarked, my guess. You can order one, but I like playing a guitar first!


And a 2013 video about his guitar and gear:

Brilliant technique .... but honestly, after 2.30 i was getting bored. I mean, how much shredding can one take ?

Is wearing a scarf the secret ?

I must admit I've NEVER worn a scarf.

In my life.

You know, I've seen several videos of him (Tommy) and once on a t.v. show, and I find it rather boring myself after a bit. I must say, if he passed through my area I doubt I would make the effort to go see him live. And I paid dearly to see Bob Dylan.

Weird.

Scarf does work! But only if you do his lessons. [biggrin]


For those that are interested, Tommy Emmanuel has fabulous lessons on Truefire. They go from fingerpicking ground up to how incredibly difficult you want! [mellow]

If nothing else, they are a great insight into his playing styles, which in a way, to me anyway, is Chet Atkins playing different songs!

So start at the top and you will be doing your own Chet/Tommy in no time, guaranteed. [scared] :



Fingerstyle Milestones:

https://truefire.com...milestones/c696


Fingerstyle Breakthroughs:

https://truefire.com...kthroughs/c1030


And soon enough, you will be watching the next lessons with TE play "Mr Guitar", which is TE channeling Chet!:

Whether one likes his playing, or not, I think that we all can admire a man who's always willing to lend a hand, or two, to a struggling guitarist.
