Tommy Emmanuel – Guitar Boogie

Here’s a great version of Tommy Emmanuel playing Guitar Boogie. The first time I saw him play this song it blew my mind, seeing what he does with an acoustic guitar. This clip is taken from a concert he did in St. Louis.

It’s great to see how comfortable Tommy is onstage and playing that guitar, cracking jokes the whole time.

Guitar Boogie is basically a 12 bar E blues… with a few frills. πŸ™‚

I think if you watch closely enough, you’ll probably see the kitchen sink in there somewhere.

Unfortunately the video isn’t terribly big on closeups, but if nothing else, I hope you’re motivated watching Tommy Emmanual rip through this version of Guitar Boogie.

Tommy is like the Australian Leo Kottke. Every time I see him He blows me away. It just looks effortless when he does that, he takes the simplest ideas and turns them into OMG fantastic arrangements. Thanks for the treat.
