A Master Musician’s Masterful Performance


Here.

One of the most astonishingly wonderful solo performances on a guitar that I’ve ever been privileged to witness… and I’ve seen a few thousand. It comes from a great showman, a spectacular performer, and one of the finest guitarists who have ever lived, Tommy Emmanuel.

The last four seconds are four of the most delightful seconds you will experience in music. Heck, they’re four of the most delightful seconds you will experience in your life. If you don’t laugh out loud with the sheer joy and fun of it, then you just might not be human.

Remember, though, that he spends the previous seven or so minutes setting up those last four seconds with knock-your-socks-off-and-rock-you-back-in-your-chair, bravura guitar playing.

I was able to take in one of Tommy’s concerts when he was playing in Hartford. It was two hours of sheer delight. The man is a massive talent, with more energy than an atomic bomb, and more talent, technique, showmanship, joie-de-vivre and virtuosity than any ten other guitarists… combined.

And those last four seconds…
