    Saw this and thought I'd share. Most people leave comments on the little girl that walks up to Tommy while he's playing... she's cute, but I dig Tommy's amazing playing and the Gretsch tone!

    He's a great guy . Saw him 2 times and after the show theres the meet and greet in the lobby . Just an overall nice person . There should be 100 more people in the world like Tommy Emmanuel ( and the only other person I've said that about is Didi Conn , not a bad bone in her either )
    Thanks for sharing also Crooner

    I was lucky enough to work with Tommy years ago as the sound mix engineer for a show in the Victorian Arts Center. His "backing band" was a full symphony orchestra. He really is one of the nicest people you would ever meet, an exhilarating talent and no trace of BS.

    I really must get a good set of cans. I'm missing so many dang posted links.

    Tommy Emmanuel just cannot be ignored. As is so much of the stuff available in this forum.

    Does that make sense?

    By the way - and this is what I meant to say in the first place - what about decent headphones?

    I need advice.

    Thnx.

    There was a decent headphone thread a few months ago.
