Tommy Emmanuel – Avalon Medley – Live 2012 – YouTube


This is just silly it’s so darned good.

For those of you who, like me, appreciate good guitar playing, this causes either great exhilaration or great … despair.

The reason: one wonders how it’s even possible that there could be three human beings on the face of this planet who  can play this over-the-top brilliantly.

Even worse: musicians with this through-the-roof technique are supposed to be soulless, unfeeling automatons. Impressive, but otherwise musically lifeless.

Not these three.

Their joie-de-vivre, joie-de-musique, their ability to craft a note, to give it personality, even when surrounded by literally hundreds of others is … truly astonishing.
