Tommy Emmanuel

Tommy Emmanuel, four-time winner of Australia's Best Guitarist award, has helped bring the art of rock guitar down under to a higher awareness over his two-decade-long career by bringing a sense of jazz improvisation into a mix that also includes blues, country, rock, classical, and Spanish music. After years as a popular sideman and ace songwriter, the two-time ARIA (Aussie Grammys equivalent) award winner launched his solo career in 1988 with Up from Down Under. Several releases have followed, most notably 1993's critically acclaimed The Journey, which hit high on Gavin and Radio & Records NAC airplay charts. He has shown a mastery and affinity for both electric and acoustic axes and has been singled out by the likes of notable musicians such as Chet Atkins -- with whom he recorded The Day Finger Pickers Took Over the World in 1997 -- and Todd Rundgren, who considers him an innovator on the instrument. Only appeared in 2001, followed by 2002's Endless Road (it was finally released in the U.S. three years later), 2005's Live One, and 2006's Happy Hour (with Jim Nichols) and Mystery.

Although Emmanuel took a brief hiatus from the music industry at the end of 2007 for health reasons, that October he recorded all three nights of a residency at the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico, California. These recordings would make up the acclaimed double-CD live set that was released as Center Stage in April 2008. Equally well-received was 2010’s Little by Little, a comeback of sorts in the form of a double-studio album which featured a tasteful rendition of Carole King's "Tapestry." 2011’s All I Want for Christmas nodded in places to John Fahey's classic festive recordings, while 2013’s The Colonel & The Governor saw him team up with the equally talented English guitarist Martin Taylor. ~ Jonathan Widran & James Wilkinson, Rovi

Went to Tommy Emmanuel concert yesterday. Unforgettabl e evening !!!
Awesome what else can you say
I used to think I played a decent guitar until I first heard Tommy. Oh boy, he is the best.
Amen bro
I've had the pleasure of seeing Tommy many times over 20 yrs and getting to meet him . He truly is the worlds finest guitarist and showman!! My father played in Chet Atkins era and would have been amazed at what Tommy has brought to the instrument!! ! Wish I had turned pops on to him before he passed. He would have been amazed. Knoppler Atkins and Gilmore were his favorites. RIP Papasan
The worlds finest guitar player, without a doubt.
Love Tommy Emmanuel! He's been a big part of my guitar career! Thanks a bunch
2 decade long career?!?! that was written a while ago, I saw him at dural country club about 20 years ago and he was 2 decades in by then at least I reckon.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this do don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this so scary because it actually works
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be

The best, all around guitar player ever. I've seen him play rock, jazz, folk, country, classical, in addition to his own unique approach to any style of any song he plays. To the non-player his music is always pleasing, yet I wish there was some way that audience could understand all of the seemingly simple yet incredibly complex mastery he posseses. Just ask any good player to play "TICKET TO RIDE" keeping the bass riff going AND riffing effortlessly against this persistant background. Impos

he shows up in Phoenixville Pa, at the Colonial Theater from time to time, Always a sold out show!
Fabulous
amyd423
drkeyboard.. . I second that! See him LIVE! Simply astounding. :)
The bio should open with "one of the world's best guitarist ..." If you have never seen him live you are missing a rare treat. Two hours by himself with nothing but a guitar! Mind blowing. It's like he has two sets of hands. Simply astounding.
rmolinowski
Beautimus!

He does things with his guitar, Jesus Christ turned water into wine. And he was a master carpenter

oops, Moon River youtube

Tommy is great! Another great, Sungha Jung-watch his Over the Rainbow You will be blown away. He was about 5 or so? Older now, and so so good. Love this solo guitar. If I could only play like this!
JUST TO LET EVERYONE KNOW, I GOT AN A IN DISEASE PROCESSES AND AN A+ IN MICROSOFT OFFICE FOR MEDICAL PROFESSIONS. :-)
Kiss your hand
Say your crush's name 3 times

Post this on 15 other songs and your crush will ask you out on the day you said.
Wow I just fell in love with a girl named Angelina. This song just came on while I was thinking about her

goota love this for a long hw session
Awesome! Control is great. Wonder how long he has been playing.
I ran across his version of over the rainbow on youtube one day and I was stunned. Incredible.
new to me
Recently saw him, too. What a masterful player, just fun and fabulous. And so beyond anything my sad lil' fingers will ever be able to do on the instrument. :-)
Saw Tommy in Melbourne Australia with my family last year and they couldn't believe the skills he has. He is simply the best I have seen and heard to date..
This guy is a GENIUS! I've been playing guitar for over 50 years and thought I had a pretty cool style but Tommy has taken the instrument to another dimension,
dantunesmusi c
As a finger styled guitarist myself I'm simply amazed at Tommy's music. I've been playing guitar well over forty years,( a good part of it professional l y ). I wish I had 1 tenth of this guys ability.

This guy is an unbelievable guitar player.
Fantastic musician. His version of Fields of Gold is fabulous
4neomojo
those who wait gives me chills. Don't know why...but it does.
A master-music i a n . Love his CD w/Chet Atkins. Two of the best show us how it's done.
His Music is AMAZING!!
Literally the most blistering fast finger-style guitarist I've heard on a standard six string. Unbelievable !
If his name is Emmanuel he is blessed..una d u l t e r a t e d talent
shoebologna
Saw him at Britt Festival in Jacksonville , OR. Mesmerized. Needs to be in an intimate setting; his sublime and complex guitar licks are incredible.
lektrikbass
Great Picker! I believe he has surpassed Chet Atkins. I know that's almost blasphemous but true. If Chet was still with us, I'm sure he would have continued his amazing ability to discover new licks. R.I.P. Mr Atkins, Rave on, Tommy!
sr20man
Seen him in Pittsburgh a couple months back. Such a great showman. Had front row and center seats. Great time.
I saw him in Cincinnati last night, too. AMAZING as always. His skills will send chills through your body.
scott_ries
I saw him last night in Cincinnati- brilliant as always. He performed part of the show with a string quartet, and blended well despite little time to rehearse. If you ever have a chance to see him, make sure you do- the energy is amazing!
bethmassage
I wish he would record his aborigines song!!!
jamhen2
Saw him in Phoenixville , Pa a month ago. I never realized a guitar had so many voices. Just mesmerized for nearly 2 hours.
will never forget hearing this song for the first time, live, at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield. Tommy's first year there...set the festival ON FIRE with his amazing gift. Still brings tears to my eyes. Emmanuel-God With Us.
