I have been listening to your music for the past few weeks and it has inspired me to pick up my guitar (which I have not played for almost 20 years) and start learning to play your style of music. I have a good background in guitar (started playing at 13, studied music and played classical in college) but life can throw curves and I took a differen path, so the guitar took a back seat for all these many years. I would like to learn the fingerstyle playing and I recall a video of you saying to start with the easy stuff. Well, I will be starting from square one and would like to know what you consider the easy music. I also have a young child, age 9, who is interested in learning as well. I figure we both can learn together. Please give me list of songs that would be good for learning fingerstyle picking and myself and my 9 year-old. Also, if you could reference one of your music books, from your website, that would be good for a beginner, that also would be helpful.
thanks so much for you help and beautiful music,

Was listening to "Vincent" by Don McClean today and wondered if Tommy had any recordings of that song with his unique finger style?
ADMIN: No, but Muriel Anderson has a fantastic fingerstyle version on one of her album. When they have played together, Tommy plays this with her, but it's not recorded anywhere.

I just spoke with the people at 3rd and Lindesy,the place where the Jerry Reed Tribute is taking place.They couldn't seem to tell me much about it.I would very much like to meet you for a couple of minutes maybe.I saw where you was doing the meet and greet thing.Please send me needed information to do so if possible.Thank you
ADMIN: We don’t know much about the Jerry Reed show either, but there are number of artists involved. It’s not a big place and there will be no “formal” meet and greet for Tommy. You could probably just go up to him at the venue and say hello.

When are you coming to Pennsylvania? Will you have a workshop, which I attended last year in conjunction with your performance in Phoenixville, PA, at the Colonial Theater? It was an experience that I will always remember.
Your website advertises an appearance at the Philadelphia Folk Festival in Schwenksville, PA in August 2014. However, no details are available and we do not want to miss you this year. Your show last year in Phoenixville was spectacular. I have become addicted to you and your music.
I am 74 years old and only began taking guitar lessons 3 years ago. I can appreciate the difficulty! Joe

Re Budleigh Guitar Festival, a further call to the box office this morning prompted a call back to confirm the whole festival is cancelled. I believe steps are now being taken to let other ticket holders know too.
Look forward to seeing more UK dates on your schedule as soon as possible.
Have a good break over Easter!

Hi Tommy, I'm a big fan of your Music, live in Austria (not Australia :-)) and since I attended a concert in Linz/Austria I begin to collect CDs and DVDs of your concerts. The DVD "Tommy Emmanuel live at Sheldon Concert Hall" seems to be available only in NTSC-Version. Since in Austria PAL is the TV-Standard I need to have this DVD in PAL. I tried to buy this DVD via Amazon and other different web-sits but without any success. Can you give me a hint? Keep on playing your wonderful music Klaus
The DVD is region 0 for all regions. You can play it anywhere on any machine. You can buy it from http://www.tommyemmanuel.com and click on SHOP

I bought a weekend ticket for Budleigh Guitar Festival back in February to see your performance, so was really disappointed to see on your site last Friday that it had been cancelled. I was intending to travel from Suffolk to attend.
Can you please confirm that it is the whole festival that has been cancelled rather than your performance only?
The facebook page for Gypsy Music Promotions has no mention of the cancellation and, so far, my email and phone messages to the Box Office asking for confirmation of the cancellation (and refund) have received no replies. I even tried Budleigh tourist information office today and as far as they knew it was still going ahead! They mentioned that there are people intending to travel from Newcastle to see you perform on the Saturday.
I'm concerned that lots of people are going to travel a long distance to Budleigh at the end of next week to enjoy a festival that is not taking place, many of them your fans. If you are in contact with the organiser would you please ask him to let people know the situation.
I look forward to your next performance that's within reach. The Shetlands are just too far I'm afraid!

It belong to my brother who swapped an electric guitar for it. It was one of 14 made in 1979 and has an ebony fingerboard and ivory saddle. If you are ever in North Wales I would love you to try it out as it is one of the nicest 12 strings I have ever played.
