There are so many musicians out there. So many shows you can go and see. But, I’ve got one for you, and I need to tell you that I rarely, rarely pass along an artist to say “You need to go see this guy.” But in this case, everyone who loves the guitar needs to go see this guy. It’s Tommy Emmanuel, and he’s coming to the McNair Studio of Bass Hall in Fort Worth, on Friday, February 10th.
Tommy is, quite simply, THE best guitar player I have personally seen, and quite possibly the best in the world today. I mean that in all seriousness.
Yet, I would bet many of us have never heard of the guy. Let’s put it this way….the legendary LES PAUL is a Tommy Emmanuel fan, and lists him as one of the three bests guitarists in the world.
Originally from Australia, I believe he now lives in Tennessee, having had the good sense to marry an American.

Scroll down and click on the “tell me more” for a tasty little treat of Tommy’s work…it’s better than the soundclips you’ll get at Tommy’s website, because it’s an actual live cut…and yes, that’s him playing solo…
Again, as I said, very rarely do I pass something along like this.
If I could tie you all down, throw you in a van and make you go, I would….he’s THAT good…
