Tommy Emmanuel

    Hailed by Chet Atkins as "Without a doubt, one of the greatest guitar players on the planet," Tommy Emmanuel has electrified audiences from Steve Kaufman's diminutive Palace Theater in Maryville, Tennessee to the closing ceremony of the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia.

    Having toured throughout much of the civilized world, this dynamic performer who in his own words "happens to be a pretty good guitarist" made his way to the fabled competition in Winfield Kansas as a guest artist for the first time in 2000. Shortly before Tommy's performances there, parking lot pickers were said to have ceased jamming and moved trance like in droves to a venue designed to hold perhaps 500, now packed with three times that number - all to hear Tommy Emmanuel play an acoustic guitar!

    Although he has acted as a mentor to a dedicated few young guitarists in his native Australia, Tommy seems destined to make his mark performing on the world stage. His impeccable taste, flawless technique and engaging personality have inspired fans and critics alike!

The Chet Atkins Solo Guitar Collection

Tommy Emmanuel - Fingerstyle Guitarist Extraordinaire!
Compiled & Edited By Steven Herron

    There are very few guitar pickers deserving of C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player) ranking. As the founder of that elite club, Chet Atkins certainly ought to know! And when Chet Atkins calls you "without a doubt, one of the finest guitar pickers on the planet", you know you're doing something right! Tommy Emmanuel has actually been doing several things right for over 4 decades, stunning audiences of musicians and non-musicians alike throughout the world. Like fellow guitar performers extraordinaire Chet Atkins and Mark Knopfler, Emmanuel appears to have that intuition when it comes to framing a melody on the guitar fingerboard. His solo arrangements never ever sound clunky, forced, or contrived. Rather, they offer the listener a crystal clear path into the heart of the fingerstyle guitar solos he performs.

    Born in 1955 to a musical family, Tommy started playing the guitar at the tender age of 4. He was initially taught by his mother for the job of accompanying her on lap steel guitar, however it didn't take long for his own interest in the instrument to become apparent. Emmanuel can clearly recall the very first time he ever heard Chet Atkins at 7 and it had a huge influence on him. He invested lots of hours trying to decipher Atkins' intricate fingerstyle guitar style. Before he was 10 years old, he had already accumulated years of experience as a professional guitarist on tour with his family members, playing throughout Australia. Tommy performed mostly rhythm guitar at that time, while his brother Phil (likewise an accomplished guitarist) performed lead. The brothers seldom attended school up until the time they were forced to do so by the Australian Department of Education.

    Tommy's father passed away of a heart attack when he was just eleven years of age. As a result, the Emmanuel siblings (which included his brother Chris on drums and sister Virginia on slide guitar) earned the family's sole income for years. Right after his father's unforeseen death, Emmanuel sent a letter to "Mr. Guitar" (Chet Atkins himself) and was surprised when he got a letter back. Though it would still be years before their first meeting in person, the two grew to become good friends and Chet ended up being Tommy's mentor.

    Near the age of 14, Emmanuel moved to Sydney to go after a full-time music career of his own. He quickly located work in various bands and soon found himself in demand as one of the most popular session guitar players in the area. He performed on recordings by "Air Supply" and "Men At Work" to name but a few. He also provided his talents to a large number of commercials and TV shows. In 1980, Emmanuel finally made the trip to the US, contacting and performing with Chet for the first time. Ever since, "Mr. Guitar" has done a lot to assist Tommy's career for which Tommy is eternally grateful.

    Emmanuel's first solo recording, "Up From Down Under" appeared in 1987 and a lot of future releases obtained excellent success in his indigenous Australia. In 1996, he recorded "The Day Fingerpickers Took Over The World" with Chet Atkins for which he got his initial Grammy Award nomination. Since then his reputation has continued to grow worldwide, no doubt spurred on by his performance at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. He taped his very first solo guitar album "Only" in 2001, starting a trend that many admirers have long been waiting for. Playing close to 300 shows a year, Tommy is precisely where he needs to be - sharing his love for music and the guitar with the rest of us!
