The Tommy Emmanuel Interview


Thanks! Share it with your friends!

Over the last 2 years, one of the questions that popped up the most in the comments was: “What does Tommy think about what you are doing?”. Well, I recently had the chance to sit down with the legend himself, and fire some questions at him. A dream come true…

Jim Fair says:

Unbelievable interview Tim! One of the best interviews of a great musician that I've ever seen. It actually felt like you had interviewed him in the past and your were catching up with a friend. When you both played at the end you can just feel that Tommy was enjoying playing with you – that says it all! This was all so genuine and from your heart (just like all your tutorials). Thank you so much.

Thanks for asking that question about how Tommy was doing. It also seemed that asking that made you losen up and made the interview so much better.

Great documentary . I am presently attempting to purchase a Maton EBG 808TE in Canada . Only one dealer in this country . They are not responding to my email. I am 74 and been playing since i was 17 . I just want that Maton acoustic sound . Not trying to compete or copy anyone else . Nice to hear of Tommy's life experience and knowledge.
