Sir;
I am Lynn Routzahn, 58 years old from Martinsburg West Virginia. A big fan of yours and also a guitar player, but this is not about me- this is about my lifelong friend and also guitar player ( a very very good one) Jimmy Long, who is 57 years old. We have played together since 1964 when we were 8-9 years old with our first guitars. We have played countless shows here in our area and are well known.
Jimmy has had serious health issues for the last year and spent extended time in the hospital due to arterial disease in his legs/feet. A while back I bought two tickets to your June 17 show at the Rams Head in Annapolis for us as sort of an incentive to raise his spirits. Just in the past week the doctors had to amputate his foot and this has been devastasting for him to say the least. All through this he and I have continued to look forward to the opportunity to attend your show June 17. I am only asking if your could somehow just recognize my friend Jimmy at some point, just give him a shout out or something. It would mean the word to him and I would be most sincerely grateful. Thank you and may God Bless

Hello Master, I attended your concert on March 25th of this year in the Rock of Micrometer in France, in quoted(esteemed) by Bordeaux and as every time you enchanted me. You are for me the number one in the world, musically but not only. You transmit the joy of life, you have a lot of humor and you know how to communicate with your public. I do not know if I can allow to make you this request, but I would be very honored if you agreed to send me by e-mail an autograph. I suspect that you must be extremely requested, also if you did not answer me I would understand him. In advance thank you and long life to you.
Respectfully
Pierre SOULARD

Tommy, thank you for your awe-inspiring dedication to musical mastery and thank you for giving us the incomparable musical treasury that is your life's work. You're not just an astoundingly brilliant performing artist; you're literally one of God's greatest all-time musical ministers to humankind. Bless you, sir, and I hope to have the privilege of seeing you back in Austin again, someday soon!

Dear Tommy,

My name is Balint, I'm 21 years old, and I really admire your music. I've been playing the guitar for more than 10 years now, but i'm still not as good as i want to be.
I saw you're coming to Hungary, but sadly all the tickets have been sold out. First I was quite disapppointed, but then i thought if I save that money I can buy my first acoustic guitar (right now I just own a classical and an electrical one).
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you, if you ever get to Hawaii, please make a concert with local guitarst Makana who is also really taleneted. (He plays a slack-key guitar).
Please come to Hungary again sometime soon.
I hope you read this.

Good luck with your tour, and keep playing the guitar. You're really inspiring.

Thank you
Balint

Hi Tommy and greetings from Sydney. I was watching your vid on Borsalino recently, in which you demonstrated how to play the G# with your thumb. Heh, I thought it was a misprint until then! In any case, I play a nylon string and the extra width makes it impossible (for me at least).

Regarding the stretch you mention, playing the A bass note on the E string and the A flat-A natural slide on the G string, well, it's unnecessary. The A bass can be played on the open A string and that is not only simpler, it also allows the option of a double-note slide, using the D string F to F # as well as the notes on the G string.

I actually never had any problem with that stretch anyway, but the open A is IMO better. The part I have had a lot of trouble with is the section after the Bm-E9 move, where the G and G# are played on the Eand B strings. I could rarely play it without fluffing a note or two, and could never play it with the snap you generate. Eventuallly I noticed that the same notes can be played in first position A chord with the G and G# both on the E string, and it is very easy and I can hit it hard every time, so that's how I do it.

Hi Tommy,

I wondered if you have ever recorded a lovely Jaco Pastorius tune called Three Views of a Secret? I was just listening to a lovely acoustic version recorded by John McLean...as soon as I heard the opening 16 - 24 bars I thought of you and so much potential for the song in your hands.....

So, there you go, yet another fan request.... Thanks!
Regardless please just keep on doing your thing 'making happiness'!

Enjoying every note...

Hi Tommy,

If I was to listen to one of your CD's that has a "Blues" or "Country" tinge, which one should I get?

John.
