    Hey Gang!
    I’m in Beverly, MA seeing Tommy tonight! It’s intermission right now. Mike Dawes opened.
    As is my habit, I brought my guitar and once again had the honor of playing a tune with Tommy. We played Something by the Beatles together and it was a BLAST! I’ll post the clip either late tonight or some time tomorrow.

    Tommy is the man. He truly seems to do life well.
  5. Smooth. He hasn’t been this way in a while. Then again, no one comes this way. I need to drive quite a bot too catch a show, other than my own, and even then I have to drive sometimes.

    IMHO Tommy Emanuel is the best guitar player alive today. I saw him last year in concert and have most all of his recordings. There just isn't another finger picker still alive on the planet who can play like him.

    He is awesome! Can’t wait to see this videos

    I saw him last year...there were two performances at the Savannah Music Festival. I had tickets for the second set but showed up early and was lucky enough to see both thanks to a nice girl at the door.

    So glad I did because both shows were quite different...he saved the best for last though. I had invited a few people who had never even heard of Tommy and they were astounded. They talked about it for weeks!

    For those of you who never get a chance to see him, his DVD Center Stage is his best one, imo. I've watched it numerous times.

    The one from Pensacola FL is good too.. but there's just something special about the Center Stage performance.
