Tommy Emmanuel’s Jaw-Dropping Acoustic 12-Bar Blues
Posted 09/13/2017 by Laura B. Whitmore
If there’s anyone who can shred on acoustic guitar with jaw-dropping effect, it’s Tommy Emmanuel.
Hailing from Australia, yes, he has an excellent accent, and yes, he can put your fingerstyle moves to shame. But check out this video of a 12-bar blues. Here he runs through Arthur Smith’s “Guitar Boogie” and “Stevie’s Blues,” a song he wrote for the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan.
You might be flabbergasted when you finish watching. You might be shaking your head. Me, I have a big ear-to-ear grin and am gonna hit “replay.”
Throughout his career, Emmanuel has played with many notable artists including Chet Atkins, Eric Clapton and John Denver. He picked up the guitar at age 4 and as you can tell, he hasn’t put it down since. Emmanuel is on tour now. Find tour dates and more at tommyemmanuel.com.
