Tommy,
We saw you last year at Pensacola State College and again last night at the Saenger in Pensacola. I was disappointed in the size of the crowd. That place should have been packed.
You, as always dazzled us with your talent. Our only regret last year was that we didn't bring our girls. We bought seats in the rear of the theater so that we could afford to bring the daughters. Both were impressed with you and Martin Taylor. It was a wonderful show. Thanks for doing the Chet Atkins "Dad" song. We'd loved to have heard "Borsalino", or "Angelina" but we understand.
Come again, Please
Jim Stone
Pensacola, FL

I just received your DVD/CD of Live and Solo in Pensacola yesterday. Oh my, what a pleasure. I have played either the DVD or the CD constantly in the last 24 hours. The clarity and tone is simply gorgeous. Thank you Tommy for your beautiful music. I have been inspired to pic up my guitar out of its dusty corner and learn again.

God bless you always,
Karen Bultman

I have been playing for over fifty years, I am so amazed. I found you by complete surprise on a YouTube search for accomplished acoustic guitarists. You have a brand new 62 year old fan.

Hi Tommy, I just wanted to say that I am on tour at the moment with Wicked, the musical, here in Manila, Philippines. I am playing the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It has been a gruelling tour but and enjoyable one and I wanted to thank you for your music and your love of life. When ever I get tired and start missing my kids and wife, I google one of your performances on youtube and I am always filled with happiness. As a musican myself I am in awe of your talent but most importantly, your zest for life. Please continue to bring light to those dark places and melody to the masses. I will continue on my quest knowing that there is a crazy white man killing it on the 6 strings. Many thanks, Jay Laga'aia

I wrote you a little poem:

For Tommy Emmanuel

They say that you're a CGP
In all the world there's only 3.
Jerry's gone, & so is Chet.
Their gifts to us we'll not forget.

So who, my brother, are th'other two,
Who tickle them strings the way you do?
Do so much more than just play fast -
You gift us something that will last.

Something you can never define
When music comes from the divine;
Opens the heart & touches the soul,
Heals, reveals, & makes us whole

Hi, my husband is a huge fan! I think you recently met him when you received your doctorate through CSU (Nick Drengenberg is his name)? I am emailing to ask a huge (and probably impossible) favour. It is our ten year wedding anniversary in November and I was thinking I'd love to surprise him by having you play in our home town, Lithgow NSW! I understand this is probably completely impossible, but you never know if you don't ask :) We have a local restaurant that has local live music acts preform regularly, a very intimate venue that would be perfect!

Thanks for your time, and no worries if your answer is no :)

Kellie

Hi Tommy,
Greeting! This is a fan writing to you from China.
I watched your concert in Shanghai.Your performance was really awesome and breath-taking.
I love your speach of "One man band" and I'm addicted to your guitar playing, body movement and funny jokes.

The Grammy Award become more and more commercialized. In my opinion you're THE greatest guitarist and musician on this planet.

One question for my kid though - to learn guitar playing from an early age, should he use 5 line musical note or 6 line tab, or learn both at the same time?

Look forward to seeing your next concert soon in China.


Best Regards, Kevin

Hi Tommy
I was grown up and raised listening to the old classics, but believe it me, never heard of you until modern technology, youtube. And am i glad, never in all my years have i heard anybody else having a passion for a guitar and playing it the same way as you.

Being i musician myself (although i cannot and want not to be compared to anybody, playing only gospel music on a Yamaha keyboard, i also learned during my years to play guitar by ear. Was not a very keen guitar player until i saw your youtube videos, and the passion you have for a guitar.

Now i am inspired believe you me, even at this age, I'm do my utmost best on my own to see if i can only play a fraction like you, gospel music on the guitar, wit the same passion.

I was born and raised in South Africa, currently working, in Saudi Arabia.


Best Regards

Dear Tommy, Just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming to Columbia Tn this morning to visit my brother Jeff. The kindness shown has touched us all profoundly. We have not had very long to wrap our heads and hearts around this, but are finding that comfort from others is a very a real port in the storm. I'm not sure how all this works, but I think we are supposed to learn through this bittersweet journey, how to comfort others as they too, face the harder part of this wonderful thing called life. Your gift of talent has been something Jeff and I and all his friends and family have enjoyed together for many years but nothing can compare to the joy of knowing that that same man was blessed with a big heart. I hope you enjoyed spending some time with a fellow 'picker', he's so special in so many ways. Thanks again, you made him very happy.
