Had to share this - Classic Tommy!
Enjoyed that. He's a class act that's for sure.
I'm a big Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel Fan.
Thanks for posting it up.
Tommy is a force of nature.
USA fans probably don't know Tom was the drummer in an early-80's Aussie band called Goldrush, featuring his older brother Phil on lead guitar and the amazing Mark Collins on banjo. Phil can play a bit too..............
That was fantastic, thanks for sharing.
I get a great sense of national pride every time I watch a Tommy video. He's a national treasure.
He has a lot of videos shot in that same spot. I assume he shoots them from his house? Does anyone know if that's where they are shot?
I don't know where this was shot but you could assume a house with the plants and Venetians... I just love watching the joy on his face as he plays.
The last shot when all five of him look up is fantastic!
Saw him play this live on Rottnest Island Western Australia around 1993 or '94. It's a great track. I love the neo-classical bridge section -- it's a fantastic demonstration of smooth modulation in a composition:
Always a monster, and from down under no less!
He came to Belfast on his travels a while back,if anyone could be said to personify the joy of music it's TE. He makes it look easy.
Tommy is incredible.
He can also play two songs at once!!!
He is so great to watch! Ha ha
So glad I got to see him a couple months ago - I don't think anyone has the command of the guitar like he does
Check this out
To be fair that is actually a Chet number.
I know.I guess I should clarify he and Chet both can play two songs at once.
I can't tell you how much I think of both of them but Chet is definitely my main guitar hero. Especially as I get a bit older and appreciate him all the more.
I wish Chet was still with us...
Thanks for posting this... He's a breath of fresh air....
Tommy is so great. Thanks for sharing!
I've been trying to nail "Windy and warm" for quite a while now.A lot of Chet's stuff seemingly has two songs in one.Playing fairly intriquit base lines with the thumb and quasi chord progression/lead stuff with the rest of the fingers,,,,,,.Jerry Reed too.
That on top of me not picking a guitar up very often here lately.Those guys play/played constantly.

I love this clip when Ken Parker turns up at an Emmanuel/Taylor gig with a couple of his incredible Archtops. Check out from 6.40 when they start playing together.
