This is the great Tommy Emmanuel giving some great advice about learning and choosing the right song. Start off simple by choosing some great melodies and arrangements of songs and get those under your belt first. I personally met Mr. Emmanuel at a guitar clinic and he was truly inspiring. He said he still wakes up everyday and practices and has never lost his passion for guitar. As long as you enjoy it, the rest will come to you!
If you like this style of music, check out more of Tommy’s playing and also another master (coincidentally one of Tommy’s teachers too!), Chet Atkins. Both are virtuosos in the fingerstyle genre and have some fantastic songs. Tommy plays a famous Beatles song at 0.58, do you know which one it is? If you’d like to learn more about this style or get started on some great songs, get in contact!
