Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel is one of Australia’s most respected musicians. His career spans five decades and intersects with some of the finest musicians in the world. A household name in his native Australia, Emmanuel has garnered fans worldwide. His “finger style” playing uses the guitar like a pianist, with all 10 fingers. Rather than using a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drum parts, Emmanuel plays all parts one guitar. Guitar legend Chet Atkins was one of the first to inspire Emmanuel to try out fingerpicking the guitar as a child. Decades later, Atkins himself became one of Emmanuel's biggest fans.
