Dear Tommy,
WOW…Thank you for the guitar camp!
It was a very special place on so many levels, and I have come away with many insights from Michael, Steve and you.
There are no words to describe the sense of gratitude for what you have inspired in me. I adore the fact that all three of you gave every ounce of yourselves in everything you did. You allowed 130 strangers into your lives and you gave us more than a performance, you allowed us to live your experiences, highs, lows, setbacks and achievements. You allowed us to see you, and you allowed us to be us, no matter how we played or sang, or whether we were beginners or accomplished guitarists.
Since I was 12 I have followed your career, from when I first saw you on Simon Townsends Wonder world one afternoon in the very early 1980’s after school.
Some years ago after suffering a stroke and cerebral haemorrhage I promised I would return to playing guitar after a long absence. It was the memory of a twelve year old boy that made me smile and inspired me to work hard, the memory of seeing an energetic guitarist in a blue shirt playing Lady Madonna like a band…all by himself.
Your energy is tireless, you presence inspiring and your love of music and dedication simply powerful. Many Greats live on through the story you tell every moment of your life in your music be it on stage, at a master class, in a studio or simply walking down the street.
Thank you for also allowing us to indulge in the presence of the amazing people you have around you, in your lovely wife Clara, your manager Gina and many others behind the scenes.
I have come away and reflected deeply on the days at the camp and some of the special moments in which you touched me deeply through your messages resonating with me and I believe that I will be a better father, husband, guitarist and son for finally believing that the shitty committee needs to stay well out of my life.
May God bless you Tommy, Clara, Gina and all your crew in your travels, and may you continue to achieve all that your heart desires.
I will always be in your audience (front row forever I hope), I will attend any event you put on in Australia and I will work even harder than ever before on attaining my goals as a guitarist.
Until next time…with much love,

Dear Mr. Emmanuel,

I am writing in hopes that you access this message personally. My brother, Ben Perea, is one of your greatest fans! He continually sends me links to your You Tube videos, the latest being your Beatles Medley from China. You are an amazing artist and according to my brother "your style and talent is beyond belief!" My brother Ben also plays guitar extremely well, if I do say so myself! The guitar of his choice is a Pimentel, made especially to his specifications, by the Pimentel guitar Artisans from Albuquerque. He was also selected to personally play the first and only Pimentel guitar, in concert, before it was submitted to the Smithsonian Institute. Ben has also been awaded the honor of being selected as the number one banjo player in New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Oklahoma. He attends your concerts at nearly every venue across the United States, the last being in Las Vegas Nevada. My main goal in this is to let you know that he is a true fan of your work and admires you greatly!

Thank you for your time,

Linda Perea-Sedillo
Albuquerque, New Mexico

Hello! I just want to say that your playing really inspires me to keep on studying and living for music every day... I find the way you arrange music for the acoustic guitar very elegant and personal. I also relate a lot to the way you improvise on the instrument! Thank you for what you have already done for music and the guitar; hope to hear much more! Cheers from Brazil.

Hi Tommy!
Just wanted to let you know that I discovered your music over the past few weeks and I have been absolutely blown away. Your guitar tone is second to none and your music is helping me get through countless hours of homework at Temple University in Philadelphia PA, USA. You have inspired me to approach this amazing instrument in a whole new way and I hope you realize how important you are to young guitar players like me. Thank you for everything you do and I hope to see you in concert someday.
