Tommy Emmanuel is an amazing Fingerpicking guitarist but he also plays very well the electric guitar who is a real phenomenon on stage. I had the opportunity to see him on stage at the New Morning in Paris (after we recorded an audio interview), he put out incredible show just him alone on stage with his guitar. So I was very curious to watch this "Music Gone Public" live DVD of him.

Conclusion

If you have already seen Tommy Emmanuel on stage, you will love this DVD which will make you relive the intensity of its performances on stage. If you haven't seen him yet, after watching the DVD you will feel the urge to get a ticket next time the Australian guitar virtuoso is around your town.

The Guitar Channel archive about Tommy Emmanuel
Back in 2009, The Guitar Channel was then only an audio podcast, I have the opportunity to meet and interview Tommy at the New Morning in Paris. He was the very first major non-French speaking guitar player I had on the show.

Here's Sungha Jung interview done during the latest Musikmesse in Frankfurt. Sungha was there on the Lakewood booth to promote his signature model and play a couple of shows in Germany.

Shaï Sebbag is a musician I had the pleasure to interview several times in French, for the release of En Equilibre his third album it was more than time to record and English interview so his non-French speaking fans can get to know him better and also for new people to discover his universe.

With this latest release I think Shaï reached a new peak as he is delivering some awesome compositions played with an impeccable technique without useless technical demonstration.

Extracts of "En Equilibre" played before the interview

Into The Wild
Bach To The Future
