C U in Newberry on Wed. June 25. What a treat to see the best picker alive, and the best since Django. Chester B. pegged you right - "Certified Guitar Player"
Thank you for all the great music, Tommy!

Tommy put on an amazing show at BB Kings in NYC last night. He took time out to come and spend a few minutes before the show with me and my 15 y/o daughter to take pictures and chat. We wait all year for him to come and are never disappointed. Can't wait for his next trip to New York.
Tommy, you are a class act, and a pretty darn good guitar player too.

G'day Mate,
Matthew

TOMMY!
My good friend, Carroll Berl, and I, just caught your show at the Rams Head in Annapolis, Maryland Wed. Night 6/18/2014.

We really had a great time watching YOU have a great time! Carroll filled me in on your background before the concert. I'm into the swing guitars of Herbie Ellis, Barney Kessell, Joe Pass and Charlie Byrd ( who was a "fixture" at the King of France Tavern in Annapolis before his passing away).

I bought your CD before your concert -The Colonel/Gov - Martin Taylor. I never knew YOU could play swing and comp so well! It is so nice to have an artist like you keeping the guitar alive in so many styles!

Thanks so much for giving us a great time that night!
Ed Baran -

Hi Tommy. Just met you last night Thursday) at BB King Bar & Grill in NY with my daughter. Thanks again for fabulous show.
On your live CD you mentioned that no one knows what "TE" stands for at Buffalo Bill Cody's TE Ranch in Wyoming.
It is the initials of a business associate of his, T.E. Calvert (Thomas Elwood Calvert). Calvert was the Chief Engineer of the Burlington Northern Railroad which competed with Union Pacific for trans-continental rail line.

Dear mr. Emanuel,
My name is Daria and I'm from Israel . I’ve recently met this really amazing guy.
He lives, eats, breaths music- and particularly guitar.
He plays both acoustic and electric guitar- and he plays well!!
On our 3rd or 4th date, I mentioned that I prefer the sound of electric guitar over acoustic.
To prove me wrong, he played for me one of your sessions- classical gas.
It’s pointless to say I fell in love with it, but seeing the admiration in his eyes, for your talent made it all much more intense.
This amazing person- Avner, will be celebrating his 32nd birthday on August 5th.
Though I’ve known him for only a little while, I would like to make this attempt in organizing a very special b-day gift.
You must get requests like this one, on a daily if not hourly basis.
Would it be possible for you to please record a very short b-day message accompanied with a short guitar session?
That would be such a great honor for him and such a delight for myself.

I attended your second Annapolis show this week and of course had a marvelous time. I want to say that I do not play guitar. Chas put one in my hand and I have never held something so uncomfortable and wierd. With that said, I really appreciated the mini lessons on both the guitar and life.
I noticed, as I did the first time I saw you perform, that you seem to really enjoy the art of playing and that the audience seems an extra bonus. You seem to be performing for yourself. That is not to say that your concert was not appropriately interactive, just that you can tell by watching that you have a great love for the art the music and the performance of same.
We will watch (or maybe sign up for an email) for your next Baltimore local tourstop.
Thank you for another wonderful evening.

ps I really enjoy the old videos of you and your brother playing half handed on each guitar. Again, you both look like you are having a wonderful time.

Tommy,
I'm a prospective guitar student. Love what you're doing. Loved Chet Atkins, Steve Goodman, Leo Kotke when I was a kid. Still do. Little bit of keyboards when I was a kid. Your Classical Gas has me wanting to dive in again.

So I'm older now and more researched. Verdi tuning or 432A interests. Have you checked it out? Here's the question. How can someone get a guitar built with frets spaced for 432A? I know any string instrument can be tuned 432A. As far as I know all guitars are built with frets spaced to accommodate 440A and not 432A. Any help?

Please keep doing what you do.
Thank you much,
JN
