Tommy Emmanuel is one of the hottest fingerpicking guitar stars today. This complete transcription offers not only a look at his music, but insight to his style and techniques. The performance notes help players over potential hurdles in the pieces. In standard notation and tablature. Hailed by Chet Atkins as "Without a doubt, one of the greatest guitar players on the planet," Tommy Emmanuel has electrified audiences from Steve Kaufman's diminutive Palace Theater in Maryville, Tennessee to the closing ceremony of the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Having concertized throughout much of the civilized world, this dynamic performer who, in his words "happens to be a pretty good guitarist," made his way to the fabled competition in Winfield Kansas as a guest artist for the first time in 2000. Shortly before Tommy's performances there, parking lot pickers were said to have ceased jamming and moved trance like in droves to a venue designed to hold perhaps 500, now packed with three times that number all to hear Tommy Emmanuel play an acoustic guitar! Although he has acted as a mentor to a dedicated few young guitarists in his native Australia, Tommy seems destined to make his mark performing on the world stage. His impeccable taste, flawless technique, and engaging personality have inspired fans and critics alike.
