Just listening to The Colonel & the Governor. Brilliant. Thanks so much for the music. Regrettably, I wasn't able to get tix for your show at the West End Cultural Centre, in Winnipeg (it's sold out). I'm expecting the concertgoers to get every bit of their money's worth.

Cheers

Dear Mr Tommy Emmanuel
My Name's David. I appreciate your guitar style & performance.
When I'm At the internet Cafe, I'm always watching you doing 'Classical Gas'
I'm a guitarist, just a busker, here in Perth WA and watching your performances on youtube is tremendously encouraging to me, I'm presently studying music reading, and being just a year younger than you, tuning into youtube to watch you play 'Classical Gas & others such as 'Detemination' & 'Tommy Emmanuel plays Electric' keeps me motivated
Thankyou
David P Hammett Western Australia

Hey Tommy,
I am a friend of Peter Cupples and he has suggested that I contact you this way, as I have been trying to do so via the usual channels, but with no luck.

I have an idea I wanted to run past you. I'm sure you get heaps all the time..... but I have had it in my head for over 10 years now.

Without going on too much in this brief contact, I have an idea for a film clip/footage to be used either on television or ??? to try and bridge the white/black Australian divide. In my opinion a much avoided issue. And with your help, and obvious interest in this issue, and the use of your track called the Journey, I'd love to send you the idea either via email, or the old fashioned way, in a letter.

I'll explain my working life background in it also. But needless to say I'm only a few months younger than you and come from a similar family background, albeit without the guitar talent! (not that I don't keep trying)

Anyway, can you contact me and let me know your thoughts and if interested, where I can send the idea to?

Kind regards,
Jeff Glover

P.S. A few Australian mates of mine where pretty chuffed when last year, hearing their accent in the lineup outside, you ushered them into one of your shows in Nashville or it's environs in June or July last year.

Hi Tommy, Hope you are keeping well. I'm a new songwriter and just learning the guitar. My brother-in-law Ray said, "Carol you need to listen to Tommy Emmanuel." Just listened to your song Angelina on utube and your music sends one on a journey. Love your music and thanks I'll keep strumming towards playing with ease. God Bless.
Carol

Hi Tommy,
I wanted to pass on to you a story for you in regards to your music and the beautiful country of Cuba.
I spent a week in Santa Maria, Cuba recently. Being from Canada my wife and I needed a break from winter. I have been before and as a guitar player, remembered to bring a bunch of pack of strings and various other guitar stuff for the local musicians. As you probably already know, Cuban culture is rich with music in a profound way. If you never visited you really should experience it for yourself. Perhaps the following story might encourage you to do so one day.
Our first night in our resort ( Melia Cayo, Santa Maria) we went out to dinner. Before entering the restauraunt we were waiting outside in a courtyard and this young Cuban fellow ( no older than 25 ) came into the center of the square and began to play guitar. Exceptional player. He played his nylon string Godin guitar with such precision that I had to stay and watch his entire performance. Soon I realized this kid deserved a pack of strings so i fished them out of pocket and walked over to him and gave them to him. He was delighted. We both looked at each other and it was apparent while speaking to him that he did not understand how to speak english. I sat back down beside him on this little stage he was playing on and just enjoyed his playing. And then he began to play your tune For Those Who Wait. I instantly recognized it and the young fellow noticed me smiling. Right at that very moment as he was playing he we both looked at each other smiling and at the same time both of us said the same thing...." Tommy Emmanual" !
Cheers Tommy... two guys who had never met before, from two different countries and cultures, who didn't understand a word the other was saying otherwise, both understood who you are and your music.
Thank you
Gavin Parkes
Toronto, Canada
PS- I kept thinking at the time how much it would mean to this young man to meet you in person. He was clearly the best guitarist (amongst a sea of Cuban guitarists) in my mind. A prodigy like yourself that will play in a Cuban resort unknown for the rest of his life.

Dear Mister Emmanuel,

please let me try to tell You three things.


First:
How is it possible, that I (although very near to the age of 67) did not know You til 05. !0. 2014?? Very strange ...

Second:
I made up leeway from that day til now. Your kindnes, to play very fast in most cases proved to be a great accommodation for my listening, so I was able to see many of your videos on YouTube in this short time. But already it was great and very mooving. But doing this, I remarked, that its a mission impossibly for me, to think - and hear - so fast as You play. I suspect that I only could assimiate less than a quarter of the tones You play. So, by the way, I found out the reason for the complexity and enormoes speed of your playing the Guitar: That`s the only way to make also Mistakes (do You?) so fast, that nobody is able to realize them. Very cool ...

Third:
I hope, You may recognize the frindly and warm intention of this letter I wrote (trying to use my inssufficient school - English and helped from some dictionary).

I will try to listen to You in Berlin on 11.13. 2014 and I wold like to shake hands with Your basplayer, rhythmguy, drummer, komposer and the wonderful person, who bands together these great artists in harmony.

Yours sincerely from Stockelsdorf in Germany
Benno Stagge

Mr. Emmanuel, I was watching PBS the other night and seen you on Infinity Hall Live. I never heard of you before that night but after seeing your performance I would have to say that you are one of the greatest guitar players that I have ever seen. You are not only extremely entertaining, but you are but you are an inspiration. Thank you! If you are ever near Buffalo, NY, my wife and I would love to see you perform. Rockwell Hall at Buffalo State University would be a fantastic venue.

PS: are there any plans to make the Infinity Hall concert available on DVD?

I'm a music education major in wisconsin. I broke my wrist this spring semester, and this semester I was taking class guitar. Since I could not play, my teacher gave me a research project to study different styles of guitar playing, and Tommy was one of the artists I researched. I love your style. I can honestly say that i enjoy steel string over nylon string, and how much sould is put into Tommy's style of playing. Though I am a classically trained musician, I stick with my hometown roots and I can easily find great musicianship in this style of music.
