Tommy Emmanuel -Just Mindblowing!

Post by Barry on Thu Dec 07, 2017 12:01 pm

From time to time I fiddle about with harmonics, I guess most players do. The operative word here being "fiddle" in my case.
In no way could I be accused of actually playing harmonics though. Aside from the occasional punctuation here and there for effect I've pretty much exhausted my creativity.

I've always marveled at players like the great Chet Atkins who seemed to just blend into the guitar, so shmooth!

Then, I just came across Tommy Emmanuel, who has taken playing harmonically into another realm. Watch this vid and see if your jaw doesn't hit the floor. (Oh, and a certain Kiwi cum Ozzie should recognize the well worn guitar):

I've followed the Emmanuel brothers for years; super talented and always look to be having a bit of fun, especially when they appear together!! And yeah; Tommy's always used, and still uses, Maton gear.

Tommy Immanuel Redux

Since I have no life I tend to get easily distracted by bright shiny objects. Pirouette

Often that happens to be YouTube, which, driven by Google and its insidious ways of tracking you and knowing what you like, will present stuff that I actually find interesting.

On this occasion it was a TED Talk by Tommy Immanuel on being a "One Man Band". If you haven't yet discovered TED Talks do yourself a favour and check it out. It too is another bright shiny object for me:
