Tommy Emmanuel interview - Guitar in hand in Paris

Tommy Emmanuel is one of the greats of the guitar at the moment and not only in the Fingerstyle domain. The Guitar Channels proposes you for the 3rd time an interview with the Australian maestro for a Guitar-in-Hand video. His album Accomplice One, which will be released in January 2018, is excellent with incredible duets

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.

What I enjoyed the most

  • The many pieces on the DVD
  • The quality of the images
  • The sequence in between the live parts
  • The interesting bonus

What I enjoyed the least

  • Nothing really

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. Until the next article, keep on playing the guitar! Pierre. [s2If !current_user_can(access_s2member_level0)]

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 is a small part of the Tommy Emmanuel soundcheck I shot with my iPhone 3G at the New Morning in Paris on 04/05/09.
