Tommy Emmanuel on electric guitar



Tommy Emmanuel is routinely chosen as the best acoustic guitar player in the world by Guitar Player magazine, but here's a rare video of him on electric guitar.

The video quality is not the greatest and since it's from the 80's the drummer is rocking a mullet and the keyboard player looks like he escaped from the set of The Breakfast Club. Still, this is a good example of Tommy's genius. I think those of you who are guitar players will especially appreciate it.

I've got tickets to see him early next year at the Napa Valley Opera House. Can't wait.

Louisiana local or Los Angeles local? He played in Malibu last year, at Pepperdine U, but I couldn't go that night.

That's awesome. I know he tours a lot. ANd he will definitely play small venues where all the seats are good.

The last two minutes or so of that song is pure musical genius.

And wtf is that he's doing around the 2:20 mark? I've never seen that before.
