Hi Tommy,
I want to present you with a $4,000 RattleSnake Guitar in the meet and greet session at the Barbara B Mann Concert in Fort Myers Florida February 25 2014
I have a patented Acoustic Wire Bridge Truss that allows me to do some great things inside the guitar, also the tone of the guitar is adjustable, a pretty neat thing.
The tone, sustain, volume and balance of my guitar are clear like a good piano. I hope I can give this to you, they are a pleasure to play and I know you will enjoy it.
I certainly enjoy your music and hope to return some of the pleasure back to you!

Tommy,

I apologize for not having heard about you and your wonderful gift. I first watched your Center Stage performance on the local public television station and I was so amazed at your style of playing, I couldn't believe it was just you on stage creating all of music - BRAVO!

I immediately called and ordered 4 tickets to your performance at the Crest, this included your Center Stage CD but that would take 3-4 weeks to arrive.

I shared with my co- workers my evening of watching you on PBS, this brought questions that had me searching the Internet for more information and I was rewarded with a wonderful array of your recordings on YouTube - thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Now, I wish I'd purchased the meet & greet tickets, I've listened to you talk to young aspiring musicians and you are so encouraging and inspiring. You epitomize the meaning of "roll-model", you present yourself as the consummate professional.

Your studio recordings are beautiful and regardless of the quality of some of the video recordings on YouTube you have a wonderful stage presence.

If I wore a hat, it would be off to you. I have started a collection of your music and won't stop until I have everyone. May you continue to entertain and inspire people everywhere.

Best of the world to you my friend! (if I may) See you in January.

Ananda Tyson

Ascot Berkshire Jaguar Garage a couple of weeks ago.

Hi Tommy

We had a quick chat as I was on the way to the dentist across the road.

With hindsight I should have asked you who your favourite Electric Guitarists alive today are and why?.

My son Paley who is 14 is having lessons and is more into rock riffs. I have taken him to see Jeff Beck a couple of times during the last three years although he has seen you a couple of times as well. You saw him once during a concert at the Windsor Arts Centre as you were at the side watching Gareth Pearson and he was sat only a couple of feet away from you. He was probably only 8 or 9 and you watched him intently for a few seconds to gauge his reaction to the playing. We always took along some industrial ear protectors just in case you played Initiation.

Anyway It was nice to meet you and I hope your daughter cooked a great meal.

Take care.

Colin Macey.

Tommy:
My wonderful wife bought tickets for us to see you, front row, at Surflight in Jersey on Sept. 1 at 2 pm. I have not been so excited since Christmas morning a long time ago.
I'm not a young player hoping to achieve what you have. I know I never will. I'm a 60-year-old Dad of two 11-year-olds who has become inspired first by your playing, but more important, your love of music, performance and making the human race a better species through your music.
What you have given me is the guidance and inspiration to become a better player (or at least, less bad -- which led to my idea for an alter-ego performer "Les Badd."). But much, much more important, your humility and connection to fellow players and your audiences has driven me to want to make better music, and have more fun in the bargain.
I'd love to meet you and have you sign my Little Martin (my precious 1964 Martin 0021-NY doesn't leave the house much -- my Dad gave her to me). If it's not possible this go-around, maybe some other time.
Cheers:
Mark Phelps

Hi Tommy! I absolutely love everything about your music. I'm only 18 years old and i heard you for the first time on PBS. My dad told me I needed to check you out and i was like, well i guess so. I'm into the heavy metal genre for the most part but you have changed my view of music totally around. I can't say that I have a favorite song of yours because I like EVERYONE of them but if I had to choose, it would probably be "The Mystery" or "Initiation." It's amazing to me how much you can do on just a guitar. I've played electric bass now for about 5 years and I'm trying to tab some of your music but I noticed you have your own bass and guitar in your hand at the same time:) Well, I would REALLY like to hear back from you but I understand how busy you must be. Hopefully, I'll see you when you come to Conway, Arkansas. God bless and pleaaaase keep playing!!!

The thing I admire the most is the way you expand the possibilities is standard tuning acoustic guitar. Many "finger style players" rely on different tunings and muscle rote memory. Sometimes losing sight of musicality and improvisation. Love your playing

Dear Tommy,

First of all, I want to say thank you for bringing me into a wonderful world of acoustic guitar, now I am sitting on my bed watching beautiful Melbourne evening and listening to Ruby's eye live version. Life is so great.
As a young guitar love I would like to ask you a question, have you ever experienced a hard time that you have to do something else like work and cooking for your family members, you know how to succeed on this little box and you want to try your best, but the thing is you do not have time, I am really confused and wondering about if I should quit study and proceeding to my dream just like Joe Robinson did, I really need your help, thanks a lot.
