Hi Tommy, this is a short message but I have a small request for you.

It would mean the world if you can do a recording/youtube video of your rendition of Kentucky mixed with Cowboy's dream. I heard it during your toronto concert this summer, and I loved it so much but cannot find a good recording of it anywhere.

Thank you so much!!! I've been a fan since I was 12 and I went to every single one of your concerts in Toronto. Please come again soon!

Greetings from Canada,

Mike

I just want to thank Tommy ( who I now will call "William"! LOL ) again for his generosity with his time and graciousness during our meet and greet visit last Saturday night in Columbus Ohio. He signed a CD for my 9 year old great niece Dani who could not be there that night.

She has watched his PBS special NUMEROUS times and is a big fan so when I gave her the autographed CD and told her I met him, etc. she was THRILLED! So, thank you again!

My son Steven and I were also completely blown away ( like everyone else ) by the performance. You are an absolute master of your instrument, not only because of your finger dexterity and amazing technical skills, but because you use those skills to inspire joy...

It was truly an honor to meet you and a great inspiration watching, hearing ( and feeling ) the wonderful music that pours through you.

As a big fan of Chet, I also love the fact that you are taking fingerpicking and spreading it all over this world. His spirit must be smiling quite often.
Last but not least, I forgot to tell you how much we enjoy your vocals! You're so damned over-the-top masterful on guitar that your vocal abilities get lost in the shuffle - but if you weren't one of the greatest guitarist EVER, you could have easily made a career as a singer.

Well, I'm sure you hear this stuff everyday, but I only get this chance to express it to you - so my sincerest thanks again for being one of the few authentic musicians who really understand that it's about the music, the joy and the spirit of love.

- take care "William"!!!

Tommy, I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to introduce my son Caleb to you at last night's show in Grand Rapids. You are a huge influence to him and his playing and it meant the world to this young 14 year old finger-style player be able to meet you. You were so kind to him, my wife and I. And, such a gentleman. Not just your amazing playing, but you are truly a class act as a person! Sincerely, Mark

Tommy,

It was a thrill to meet you at your concert in Evansville, IN on Friday evening. Thank you for being so gracious by signing my guitar. Your music has been such an inspiration and blessing to me, thanks again for being so kind. My wife and I are looking forward to the next time we will be able to see you again.

Regards,
Bill & Anita James

Hi, Tommy! Thank you so much for sharing your gifts with us. I am not speaking only of your extraordinary musical talents, but also of your personality and zest for living. I write not only for myself, but for so many others who are touched when they see and hear you perform. You are a brilliant entertainer, yet appear to be so likeable and approachable. I have had the opportunity to see you perform only once in person, in Richmond, Virginia, but it ranks as my favorite concert. My husband and I watched the live feed from the Windsong performance last Monday and are enjoying the videos on Tommy TV. You have raised the entertainment bar to a high level, and I thank you again for letting us share it.
Congratulations on your recent marriage to a lovely lady!
Lynn

Hi, Tommy.
I met you (at the meet and greet with the non-PBS group) and heard you play last night in Columbus, Ohio. Great Show!! And it was truly amazing to meet you. You really need to look in to coming to Charleston, WV to perform at the Clay Center. It's a beautiful venue that would be perfect for you. Thanks for the autographs; I hope to see you again some day.
By the way, I'm a school teacher, and my 3rd grade class said to tell you that they said, Hello!

Hey tommy,

I am a jazz studies performance major (for guitar) at the Ohio state university and I was fortunate enough to see you play last night here in columbus. I was impressed that you have come so far by working songs out by ear. These days it's so easy to use tab for everything and as a result a lot of players don't really listen to what they are playing. I was truly inspired by what you said about the music industry being the industry of joy, and hope your right that hard work pays off. Keep making great music.

10 yrs of waiting and I finally was fortunate enough to see you perform in Columbus, Oh. Everything I had hoped for and more. Truly an emotional experience. Unexpectedly the highlight of the evening for me was "I still can't saw goodbye" I could feel Chet Atkins. Absolutely incredible.

Dear Tommy, greetings from Russia!

Thank you so much for your latest DVD, I'll be among the first to get it! It's also a great idea to attach hands-only versions for some songs. That's what was missing greatly in the previous recordings! But it would be even better to have all of songs in double next time, please! I've managed to learn some of your songs by slowing down the recodnings of your perfomances and I've been playing them for about 3 years now already. I try to practice for at least half an hour everyday. I've purchased a silent guitar especially to be able to play even at late hours and to have it with me on the road (and you've signed it before this year's concert in Moscow, if you remember, thank you again!). Still far far far away from being perfect but I'm not going to stop this pleasure!!)) Also I'd like to thank you for your new songs, love all of them and I've learned the Secret love from YouTube already, it's a beauty! Looking forward impatiently to attend your concert in April here in Russia, already got the tickets. Please, take good care and be safe on the road!
