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.
