One man One guitar One great album

Buccagod

Musically no one does it better than Tommy. This is pure guitar from the heart so what if the vocals are average on the few tracks that they appear on, you dont listen to this man for the voice but truly for his expertise on the guitar. I dont feel that there are many better if any at all in this genre of music.

Aussies Understand

Tommy and his (to a slightly lesser extent) brother Phil have been around for a long time playin' some of the best you could even HOPE to hear from a guitar.Word is that as kids their father would offer a substantial wager that no person could play better - and NObody ever won,surprise surprise!! Tommy has been an icon (hate the term) with aussie fans for many years and the fact that USA residents haven't heard him much is mainly due to the largely INTROSPECTIVE nature of US of A..no offence..I'm on your side!Listen and enjoy,like all good music.

Absolutely Unbelievable

I too have recently discovered this incredible guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel. Totally uncoventional with his style which is maybe why he appeals to me. He is an all-out guitar player that does things on his guitar with total passion and precise timing that will completely blow your mind. You must see Tommy on YouTube to get the full impact.

over the top....

Anyone with an affinity toward the guitar better tighten up your boot straps before you start listening to Tommy Emmanuel. Talk about raise the bar! I've played the guitar professionally for most of my life and have never heard anyone match this mans mastery of the instrument. And his own compositions, IMHO, are really good. They're varied, dynamic, complex, melodic, and beyond all, beautiful. As a newcomer to this artist, I'm wondering how I missed this guy until now. Download it all. His cover of "Rainbow" is pure brilliance put on a song I thought had seen it's last breathe of originality. The use of a "cascading" tecnique to create that harp-like effect at that speed is sooo difficult that other guitarists can only wish and weep. But it's not just speed and agility. It's a melodic sense that comes from a very bright place. This album, as his other listing on emusic, Only, are great finds. Really inspired. Tommy's the greatest guitar player you never heard of!

They Say All Music Guide

Originally released in 2002 in Tommy Emmanuel’s native Australia (where he’s a jazz and folk guitar legend) but not available in the States until 2005, Endless Road is a solo acoustic album that in its revamped form adds a pair of unimpressive vocal numbers. Emmanuel’s fingerpicking style is heavily influenced by Chet Atkins, who appears here on a genial but melodically flimsy duet called “Chet’s Ramble” that, truth be told, sounds like it was probably an outtake from their 1997 duet album, The Day Finger Pickers Took Over the World. Emmanuel fares much better on his own, but he’s at his best when he’s working with songs that have stronger melodies than his own competent but unexciting tunes. For example, on the increasingly moldy standard “Over the Rainbow,” Emmanuel offers a hint of John Fahey’s diffused, abstract style in its intro before moving into a more traditional iteration of the familiar melody. Even better is Emmanuel’s flashy but effective reworking of the nearly as hoary “Mona Lisa,” which Emmanuel turns into a shimmering, kaleidoscopic version of itself. Not all of the recastings are quite so effective: Emmanuel simply is a far better guitar player than he is a singer, and the a cappella take on Jerry Reed’s “Today Is Mine” does neither singer nor song any favors. – Stewart Mason
