Hi Tommy
I was at your concert last night at the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen (I'm a huge Martin Taylor fan, and think last night's show was my 8th time of seeing him!). But I was blown away by your exciting partnership and experienced real goosebumps of pleasure as I listened to your magnificent style of playing!
Your enthusiasm was infectious, and I found myself grinning in amazement as you produced such a variety of music and sounds from your guitars - the percussive effects especially! It reminded me of the first time I saw Jamie Cullum in concert- he used the piano in a similar way, beating out rhythms on it, just so innovative and exciting. I particularly loved your Beatles medley last night - and did I detect a cheeky Oasis tune hidden in there??
So I just wanted to thank you SO much for a wonderfully entertaining evening - I of course remain a loyal fan of Martin's, and thanks to him I am now also a fan of yours!
I hope the rest of the tour goes well for you both.
Kind regards
Susan

Fantastic concert from you and Martin last night in the Lemon Tree. And maybe the banjo player from Mumford and Sons may have a Ferrari one day.

Hi Tommy,
Just a quick note to let you know how much i enjoyed your concert in Ulverston on Sunday 24/03/2013 with Martin Taylor. I thoroughly enjoyed the concert which i thought was fantastic throughout. The musicianship and entertainment was first class and it passed too quickly. It was the first time i have seen you perform but it wont be the last. Thanks again for a wonderful evening.

Hi Tommy,

Saw your show at the Lemon Tree Aberdeen last night. Thanks for for a wonderful show. You we're out if this world and so was Martin Taylor. It's the first time I've seen you live. It was great to be in the second row and see your amazing finger work up close. I feel truly privileged to have seen two of the all time greats on guitar last night. It was so wonderful I'm still on a high next day. Please come back to Aberdeen soon.

Dear Tommy,

Have enjoyed several of your concerts both hear in Texas and back in my birth country of Sweden. Every chance I get I tell my friends to go to one of your concerts if they ever have the oportunity. However, after having promoted your cause hear in the Austin, Texas area for the last couple of years, my friends are starting to ask me when is this guy "Tony Enamel" ever going to show up again in the Austin area. I keep telling them you are the greatest guitar player ever lived, but their patience is growing thin. Please, please ask your tour manager set up a concert date for Austin sometime in the near future.

Thanks and regards,

Bob Hammar

Hi Tommy, my name is Per Hugo Smelror and i live in a small town called Vadsø, far up north in Norway. I am 60 years old and have been playing guitar since I was 10. My first guitar was a bad, cheap one named Lucy Seven, and the first song I learned was Red River Valley, in the key of C.
I never became a good guitarist, lazy on practice and noone to help and korrect me. I was off and on the for almost 45 years, only playing rythm in various groups.
One day I saw the light :-) I was searching YouTube for Guitar Boogie by Arthur Smith and stumbled upon a verson of the tune I never had dreamed about. Fast, crazy and wonderful. I was stunned. Magic. At that moment I became a great fan of Tommy. In my wildest dreams I could not antisipate that anyone could play like that. I went through the Tube for all Tommys apparences and learned a lot. The first was: practice, practice, practice. Then a lot of other advices. Now I practice 10-15 minutes every morning, then half an hour every evening. My wife is my audience, reading papers or talking on the phone :-) She like the sound of the guitar and do not mind to listen to practice. To day I am playing Guitar Boogie my own way, and is having progress in Chets style. I will never be a good guitarist, too old for that, but I enjoy playing every day and I can see progress. I am working perticulary hard on difficult parts (as Tommy said), and experience one day to reach the top, and the difficult part have became an easy part.
All my joy and happiness with my guitar is enterely thanks to Tommy and his fabolous guitar playing.
Your faithful fan :-)
Per Hugo

Hi Tommy,
I just wanted to say thanks for a great evening last night in Ulverston, it was wonderful watching you and Martin play and to have a brief chat with you afterwards (I was the one who mentioned Django and Chet) I loved your comment about resting on the shoulders of those two giants. I have been recently getting to grips with Chet's work and been immersing myself in his tunes from the early 50's. The more I listen and work out the more marvellous his playing seems. I've got myself a Gretsch 6120 and a thumb pick and I also play (in a pale imitation) some of your tunes too - Green Thumb, Angelina, Borsalino. I love this style of music, it only makes you smile! I don't know if you ever get the time, but I'd love to know what you think of my playing - I'm on YouTube or check my website above, thanks again for the music and inspiration, Matt

Just watched (youtube) the 2000 concert in St Louis and thought it was the best I'd ever seen. Did not know much about you until a couple of days ago when the rhythm guitarist in our band (I play lead) told me about you.
Have been a fan of Martin Taylor for a long time so don't know how I missed out this long.
We play a lot of Hank Marvin/Shadows numbers which I'm sure you know of anyway.
Best Wishes,
Paul Bellamy, South Wales, UK.

Just had to write a note. Tommy, your music does something on the inside of me. I can't explain it. Something wells up inside me every time I watch your videos. I saw you in Orlando Florida awhile back. My wife sat with me and watched me cry for 2 hours. You truly are a gift from God. keep making music and thank you for sharing yourself with us!
