    Default The Tommy Emmanuel Thread

    I couldn't find a dedicated thread to this Aussie acoustic wizard and I think he deserves one. If there is one already that I couldn't find, then my apologies.

    I think he's the best acoustic player in the world. His passion, ability, musicality and showmanship are effortless and amazing no matter how many times I've seen him play. His finger picking, playing a melody and rhythm simultaneously, use of harmonics and fills are incredible.

    Tommy Emmanuel is SICK! I believe you're right about him being the best acoustic player in the world.

    Tommy is amazing. Definitely the best acoustic player around. I'm not so keen on his electric playing, though.... Is good, but not my thing.

    His brother Phil can play too.
