I deduce you are self taught player and better for it,( I think.) Your a one of a kind like all the other self taught instrumentalists and it makes you unique. I say this because you do a number of things that I was forbidden to do when learning classical style. There are many good guitarists out there but your the best for me. Wish I could re-learn in your style. Your the "Stéphane Grappell" of the Guitar.

I play mainly acoustic guitars in a semi pro situation. I want to get more intimate on the finger picking but have these fleshy short nail fingers. I think a thumb pick like you use would be ok after a while , finger picks are a bugger. Would you recommend stuck on nails? PS I am in contact with your friend Ben Hughes here in Uk. Trying to help here n there. Regards Paul

The guys up in Cairns put me on to you when I was trying the new Maton SRS70 ... absolutely incredible - both you and the guitar !! Don't know how I'd not come across you before but fantastic music, real depth and tone ... when you next playing in Brizzy ?!

Hello from a finger picker in Round Rock Texas (just outside Austin), how come I don't see any Texas tour dates? I would love to see Tommy live and I have to believe there is enought demand for Tommy's incredible skill to have a gig here, any Texas gig's being planned?
REPLY: There is indeed a demand for Tommy in Texas... which is why he plays there often!
He just played two dates there in October.. sign up for the mailing list so you don't miss out on any future dates near you! www/tommyemmanuel.com/tours/

Hello Tommy. My family and i will be attending your show in Grass Valley CA on Feb 1 2014. We live about 30 minutes away in Weimar CA directly on the way to G V via Interstate 80, and would like to invite you and your crew to lunch on your way to the show . Accommodations are modest, small log house on a couple acres. I would be happy to provide you with more detailed info if you are interested. Looking forward to the show. Sincerely, Mike Scalzo
REPLY - Mike, thank you so much for the invitation to lunch. Our traveling schedule is very busy and our mission is to get to the hotel each day, have a rest and get to the show to set up early. Usually we only eat breakfast and dinner at the venue, so because of the pace of the tour we'll have to decline this time. ADMIN

If I could have played even half as well as you do, I would never have considered doing anything else with my life. No matter if I made any money or not, it wold have been obvious that guitar playing was all I was meant to do.
I live in Brazil now. If you ever play anywhere in Brazil, I will be there. Nothing will keep me away.

I don't know how it is that I've only just recently found out about you. I've spent the last four hours poring over Youtube, checking out videos of performances, instantly becoming a huge fan. I've already locked in June 20 for New York City BB Kings date. Hope that holds and I can't wait to catch the show. Trying to get good seats for Denver Feb 6 date for Christmas presents for my parents, who turned me on to your phenomenal talent. Know any tricks? Even if I have to get next to last row, it'll be worth it. Hope it's a great tour. Best, Barret Schumacher
REPLY: it looks like there are still some good seats available (on both the mezzanine and the left and right sides of the theatre)
You can choose your own seats when purchasing through this ticket link http://bit.ly/17ogNA6 See you then! -admin

On May 27th, 2014, it will be the fourth time i get to witness the magic that is your concert. The previous 3 times you came through the Ottawa-Gatineau region of Canada, you did not perform my personal favorite Amazing Grace. Your youtube performance in Seoul Korea is the most moving rendition I've ever heard. This time around, can I impose upon you to make Amazing Grace part of you playlist for that performance.
