Musical Interlude # 12

.
Usually those who play fingerstyle use a thumb pick and Tommy mostly does but when he was teaching himself to play like Chet Atkins out in the outback of Australia as a young man, he had no idea what a thumb pick was. So, he learned how to do it using a straight pick and I'd say this tune is one that takes him back to those days. One guy, one guitar, once through.

  5. Christopher, He does a fantastic live show. I saw him last year and will again this year in Cincinnati.

    If you get the chance.

    And lots of great stuff out on Youtube. Check out Guitar Boogie and Day Tripper/Lady Madonna for some good examples.
