I'm a fan!

Today on the Bob & Tom Show I heard a guitarist - Tommy Emmanuel - that was recently named "the Best Acoustical Guitarist in the World" by the readers of Guitar magazine. He played some short outtakes of a few songs, and I was hooked. I am buying a CD shortly. In the meantime, he has a lot of cuts on You Tube. Here are some links for three of them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxKjg6Yy23Y http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TX0eTp7SoNU&NR=1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5qakFIecBU&feature=related Sorry, this blog format will not allow me to put links. You will have to cut them (one at a time) and put them in your address bar of your browser. (if it does not work for some reason, just go to www.youtube.com and type in "Tommy Emmanuel" and search. Enjoy, if you like music - You will. The third link is especially AWESOME! It is a duet with the best ukelele player in the world, doing George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". If it does not move you, you are stone.

Thanks for the tip. He is amazing, and I did love the duet with the kid on the ukele. Amazing.

And, by the by, happy birthday. I did mean to at least send you an ecard. Add to my to the list of useless relatives.
