Tommy Emmanuel: Exclusive Picking Lesson — Video

We recently had acoustic guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel stop by the Acoustic Nation studio.

Luckily for you, we didn’t let him leave without passing on some valuable picking tips!

Emmanuel has an uncanny ability for thumb and fingerstyle picking, and it’s our guess that hanging around Chet Atkins certainly helped too.

Below, the guitarist offers some advice for players new to this style of picking.

Be sure to also watch our exclusive interview with Emmanuel, where we discuss songwriting, his relationship with Chet Atkins, touring, gear and much more! Watch it here.
