To make this magic effect work,

one takes a few ingredients:

- Me

- A famous guitar player :dude:

And poof:

Guess who?

He signed two pictures and a scratch-plate for me. Really awesome guy.

I asked him, about this thing I heard. Where I am from, there was a guitarist who owned a 1934 Gib. Kalamazoo guitar. All original and in good shape.
He wanted Tommy to have this guitar. The fan who wanted to give him the guitar was terminally ill. So Tommy visited his house and played all the songs he requested, at his bed. The kalamazoo guitar is still played by him nowadays and even live on some gigs. Tommy knew his name and he told me he'd still remembers that moment & the person perfectly. This guy died 4 days later, after probably the most special concert of his life.

So this one goes out to Tommy Emmanuel.
You will never meet a more talented, kind, humble and cool famous guitarist than him.

For those who don't know him, look on youtube and be amazed!
For those wanting more, see him live.


Hope you guys like my writing here and understand that I'm still amazed, now more then ever.:slash:

Grt.

Guess how nervous I was :p

He's totally laidback. His character is the same as the way he plays guitar.
Awesome:slash:

Nice one.
There's hope for us all, I noticed a couple of bum notes (my speciality) in the first vid.
The boy sure can play though.

Yeah, but this is way different then on the stage.
Different guitar, no warm up.

My les paul was in another city, but damn, if he played it. I'd be honored.

Dang. I've never met anyone famous. I interviewed Donald Segretti once when I was a reporter, but I don't think that counts.

Yeah, we where there waiting for like half an hour, so we started talking and naturally play a bit of guitar.

I was showing some guy how to play kashmir and in walks Tommy.
Followed by my screwing up that song. :) Awkward moment.
Funny now though. :laugh2:

I'm ashamed (Slightly) to say that she was the FIRST thing I noticed...:dude:

Are you a bluesman? :p

Priority matters ;)

First time in my life, that a dude gets more attention then a girl from me.
