Dear Tommy, After watching your you tube videos and lessons, you have become my new mentor. Your playing is fantastic. I am coming to see you as soon as you get close enough to my location. In the mean time I am buying video lessons. Thank you for what you do.

Sincerely Jay Shoopack

Hello Tommy!

I'd just like to let you know how much of an admirer I am, and how much I respect your musical skills and your way to express yourself trough music (alltough I don't have any musical talent and can't fully comprehend those skills of yours). The skills itself are something beyond that of any ordinary mortal could achieve. But what I respect and enjoy the most about listening and watching you, is that very apparent enjoyment of doing what you do. It can be read, not only from your face, but from the entirety of your body and essence.

My words can't describe how I feel when watching your live performances and hearing and seeing you play your guitar. It gives me so much positive energy to my own life to see someone so extensively enjoying what they do.

You also practice humility in ways that could be hard for some people who are that good at anything. I am sure that you know what I mean, but for clarfication: you don't overly brag about your talent and you don't look down on people. You just do what you do and encourage others to do the same. My ever increasing respect grows, again.

Should these posts or what ever they are called have a bottomline then mine is that what you do is good in many more ways than just the great music. That is for me, at least. I have a terribly bad eyesight caused by a hereditary disease but I can still see, hear and sense all that positive energy you emit by playing. Hopefully I will have the chance to come and see you play guitar in real life one day.

And in the end I'd like to lighten the mood up and copy some "Tommy Emmanuel Facts" the same way there are "Facts" for instance about Chuck Norris. There's no need for anyone to get offende by these, they are for amusement purposes only! Some of these I came up by myself, some are modified version found on Youtube comments, and some are direct copies:

"I hate it when people compare Tommy to God. I mean He's cool and all, but He's no Tommy Emmanuel”

"Even Chuck Norris kneels before Tommy and his guitar"

"Tommy has flame resistant fingers"

"Tommy has played chords that would break a less interesting man's fingers"

"Tommy has to custom-make his picks from a special boron carbide alloy"

"If you're worthy enough to shake Tommy’s hand, your musical skills will increase greatly"

I was at the concert in Fiesole, and I just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful experience in music. When I saw the stage it looked sparse, but, when you began to play it became full of wonderful sounds. It was amazing to see how many ways you can use, and how many different sounds you can get from the guitar. It was a lesson learned.

Hi Tommy!
Several weeks ago I was thrilled to see the Cambridge Folk Festival appear on your list of tour dates. This was quickly followed by dismay when I realised the date of your performance was the day we were due to go on holiday.
Solution - we're coming to the folk festival (tickets arrived this week) and going on holiday one day late, after your workshop on the Sunday.
Conclusion - what a brilliant way to start a holiday!!

Tommy,

Just a quick hello from a admiring fan who is trying his best to play guitar like you. Tell me how do you stop your fingers from being torn to pieces the amount you play.

Also please tour Australia more, we miss you.

regards

Steve

Hello, Tommy, or guys, who're reading my letter before show it Tommy! You are all the best at your jobs!
I know, that you, Tommy, have a lot work to do, but I hope you'll find some time to read my message.
Of course I am your big fan, but I have a problem, I am from Ukraine. I'm sure you don't know about Ukraine, however a few years ago you've been here. It is the biggest country in Europe, that contains with the biggest amount of government thieves, but we're not supposed to talk about it.
I opened you as a musician to myself a few months ago. And now I have a wish to see you in the concert and maybe to chat with you some day. Remember my problem? OK, I have another one! I don't have enough money to fly abroad. So after a lot of thinking, I found out what we could do, why don't you fly in Kiev and make a concert here? You would earn some money, I would be able to see you live, AND, remember that story about martini? Well, I am not a fan of alkohol, but I am sure, that I make the best cappuccino in the world!
So, I am waiting for your answer,
P. S. Sorry for my english.
Your sincerely,
Denny
