Over the course of the next few months, I will demonstrate a wide variety of the specific right- and left-hand techniques I use most often, as applied to the songs from my latest release, It’s Never Too Late, plus some of the other tunes in my repertoire that I am asked about most often.
Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of “It’s Never Too Late," a new song by Australian virtuoso guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. It's the title track from his new album, which will be released September 18 via Thirty Tigers.
Are you seeing double? So am I! It's Tommy Emmanuel and...Tommy Emmanuel in a duet with HIMSELF! If you think this might be gimmicky, well think again. Emmanuel knows how to deliver on beautifully executed acoustic performance and this one has double the goodness.
Acoustic guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel has just released a collaborative album with musicians Ian Date and Ian Cooper.Just Passing Through was released June 23, and features nine tracks of gypsy jazz, folk, and blues styles that highlight each player’s musicianship. Here’s a taste of the album in video form – an amazing clip of the group performing the standard “Honeysuckle Rose.”
Here’s a really great video featuring the guitar playing sisterly duo of Grace and Chelsea Constable. Equipped with Taylor guitars (a nylon string 214ce-N for Grace and a 714ce for Chelsea), the Constables perform an incredible tribute to the legendary Jerry Reed. “Jerry’s Breakdown” is no walk in the park for even the most seasoned of fingerstyle guitarists, but Chelsea and Grace—only 13 years old—make it look easy!
Here’s a cool video from guitarist Richard Keelin from Ashland, KY. Utilizing a thumb pick and finger style combo, Keelin digs in to a wide variety of covers with material ranging from Chet Atkins to The Beatles, Nirvana and Pharrell Williams.
