Hi Tommy.
I don't know where to begin. I have heard you say that people have told you that your music has touched their lives but your music has done more than that for me. I am 17 years old and my mother died when I was 3. Only now am I starting to realise how much I have missed. I stumbled across one of your many amazing takes of guitar boogie this time last year and Tommy I'm telling you now I cried laughing. When I hear a piece of music that is really good, I laugh. Because its the happiness business right?! That's where it all changed for me Tommy and your music has helped me come to terms with my Mother's early death. She was musical just like you and just like me. I have been teaching myself guitar since I was 12 and have recently been told that I have taught myself to a grade 8 standard. But that's not enough I want to do what you do. Because what you do changes lives. You are a life changer and a life saver my friend. My life ambition is to shake your hand and share words with you Tommy. You're my hero and you always will be.
Thank you for doing what you do.
All my love from Cardiff, Wales
Tom Knight

Tommy I'm a fairly new guitar player seeing as how I've only been playing for 7 years.I too am self taught I just wanted to let you know what an inspiration you and your music are to me. during my 5th year i fell into a slump and hit a plateau in my playing. Then I heard your album The Mystery. I immediately got back into my playing and started to take it seriously. When I begin to feel lazy I just put on Lewis and Clark or Cantina Senese. And I feel ready to play again and strive toward becoming a better guitarist. Thank you so much Tommy for what you do and blessing the world with your gift. I pray you continue to have safe travels while you tour and again thank you for your music I can get lost in and just lose myself.

God Bless,
Marcus J. Young

Tommy, I had a great time at the Midwest City, Ok concert. It was the first time I had seen you perform. I have been taking guitar lessons for almost a year. Last week my instructor started me on Windy and Warm. However, there was a song you performed for your encore song and I would like to know what it is. As I think your windy and warm./ classical gas is probably the best thing I have heard. As I am almost as old as you, my birthday is later this month. I have heard a lot of music, but nothing quit as good as yours.
Thanks for the photo and signing my ticket. My wife had it printed and it is being framed. You can check it out on facebook! I look forward to your next concert in OKC or in any state adjacent as I will be there!
I hope you are doing well and that I have opportunity to see you again. Warmest Regards, John PS: I have orderd most of your CD's. I want to make sure I get that song you performed last.

Hi There, I wonder if you can please help me? I recently purchased a 2003 Taylor Big Baby, which has a signature on it, which is claimed to be that of Tommy. The seller is a session musician and claimed Tommy signed this guitar, after giving it a brief try (few riffs and a few bars of Angelina. This supposedly took place during a "meet and greet and a show in Cambridge. Obviously I do not expect Tommy to remember it, the amount of people he encounters. Is there anyway I can check the authenticity of this signature? Obviously I am a big fan, and whilst not my only reason for buying the guitar, it did have a bearing on my decision. Any help or guidance would be very much appreciated. Best Regards Brian


 


REPLY:   Tommy's signature is pretty unique, so you should be able to compare it online:  but he does play Cambridge, and he does sign guitars at the meet/greets... so consider it authentic! -admin

Hi Tommy! Just another young guitarist dropping by to tell you how much I love what you do! I'm an aspiring guitarist and only just recently I have started watching videos of all your performances and listening to the wonderful music you make and I'm seriously so blown away by not only your skill but your incredible passion for music! Keep doing what you do! While I'm not ready just yet to play most of your songs (I can't find quality thumb picks anywhere!), I am always trying to better myself and work towards it because of people like you. Stay awesome!

Hi Tommy ! My name is Félicien Bogaerts, I'm the youngest belgian radio broadcaster (17 years old) on the national rock&pop station, Classic 21 and also a guitar player : guitar is my life ! I just wanted to tell you how deep your music has influenced me since I'm a little kid. I began playing the guitar thanks to players like you, and thanks to my dad, who's maybe one of greatest fans (and also a very good guitar player) ! :D I decided to make a surprise for my dad's birthday, and so I bought too tickets for your concert in Belgium (on the 16th of November). Seeing you together with my dad will be a very emotional and intense moment, I'm certain. I heard that you've organized some "meet&greet" and it would be incredible to see you there, to talk a bit with you and maybe, if it doesn't bother, to make a little interview for my show on Classic 21 ! Do you think it would be possible ? I really don't want to annoy you but it would be absolutely awesome for my dad and I, we love you so much ! Thanks a lot and have a nice tour in Europe :) Best regards, Félicien Bogaerts

Hi Tommy,
Maybe you remember me - I played Pirates of the Caribbean for you when you signed my guitar in Dallas a few years ago, and then you suggested that I learn Yankee Doodle Dixie. Well, I learned that one and Happy Again. I know you like both of them. Please let me know what you think. We put them on youtube: Happy Again (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VH3D1Py1VBI&list=PLh_YTEwWW5VCVuWVCLKfCcOYFhJ7bhlW3&index=6); Yankee Doodle Dixie (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NacHWDtDAlg&list=PLh_YTEwWW5VCVuWVCLKfCcOYFhJ7bhlW3&index=7). Thanks!
Noah
