Hello Master, I attended your concert on March 25th of this year in the Rock of Micrometer in France, in quoted(esteemed) by Bordeaux and as every time you enchanted me. You are for me the number one in the world, musically but not only. You transmit the joy of life, you have a lot of humor and you know how to communicate with your public. I do not know if I can allow to make you this request, but I would be very honored if you agreed to send me by e-mail an autograph. I suspect that you must be extremely requested, also if you did not answer me I would understand him. In advance thank you and long life to you.
Respectfully
Pierre SOULARD

Tommy, thank you for your awe-inspiring dedication to musical mastery and thank you for giving us the incomparable musical treasury that is your life's work. You're not just an astoundingly brilliant performing artist; you're literally one of God's greatest all-time musical ministers to humankind. Bless you, sir, and I hope to have the privilege of seeing you back in Austin again, someday soon!

Dear Tommy,

My name is Balint, I'm 21 years old, and I really admire your music. I've been playing the guitar for more than 10 years now, but i'm still not as good as i want to be.
I saw you're coming to Hungary, but sadly all the tickets have been sold out. First I was quite disapppointed, but then i thought if I save that money I can buy my first acoustic guitar (right now I just own a classical and an electrical one).
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you, if you ever get to Hawaii, please make a concert with local guitarst Makana who is also really taleneted. (He plays a slack-key guitar).
Please come to Hungary again sometime soon.
I hope you read this.

Good luck with your tour, and keep playing the guitar. You're really inspiring.

Thank you
Balint

Hi Tommy and greetings from Sydney. I was watching your vid on Borsalino recently, in which you demonstrated how to play the G# with your thumb. Heh, I thought it was a misprint until then! In any case, I play a nylon string and the extra width makes it impossible (for me at least).

Regarding the stretch you mention, playing the A bass note on the E string and the A flat-A natural slide on the G string, well, it's unnecessary. The A bass can be played on the open A string and that is not only simpler, it also allows the option of a double-note slide, using the D string F to F # as well as the notes on the G string.

I actually never had any problem with that stretch anyway, but the open A is IMO better. The part I have had a lot of trouble with is the section after the Bm-E9 move, where the G and G# are played on the Eand B strings. I could rarely play it without fluffing a note or two, and could never play it with the snap you generate. Eventuallly I noticed that the same notes can be played in first position A chord with the G and G# both on the E string, and it is very easy and I can hit it hard every time, so that's how I do it.

Hi Tommy,

I wondered if you have ever recorded a lovely Jaco Pastorius tune called Three Views of a Secret? I was just listening to a lovely acoustic version recorded by John McLean...as soon as I heard the opening 16 - 24 bars I thought of you and so much potential for the song in your hands.....

So, there you go, yet another fan request.... Thanks!
Regardless please just keep on doing your thing 'making happiness'!

Enjoying every note...

Hi Tommy,

If I was to listen to one of your CD's that has a "Blues" or "Country" tinge, which one should I get?

John.

Tommy...My bride and I have 3 boys, 11, 14 & 16. We encourage music, graphic arts, video and photography with them. We have been watching and would be ecstatic if you came to Seattle, Washington to perform. I'd take the whole family. Plu-eeeeze come to Seattle soon (Spokane is a real push for us).
Thanks.
Ryan

Hello Tommy

First of all thank you for a great performance that you gave in Munich. Me and my wife were amassed that you managed to outperform our already high expectation.

I heard one song a couple days ago and imagined you performing it. It has a slow tempo in beginning and then the fast tempo just to finish with a slow tempo again. And it has a rhythm guitar that differs from the sang words, and that is than topped with a violin that ties everything together. I would love to hear you perform this song. Could you give it a listen? I can already imagine you play all of those seemingly unconnected melody lines in one perfect arrangement.

I would love to hear a reply from you, even if you decide not to do this project.

Best regards
