    I cranked Tommy's album "The Journey" on my iPod on the way to work today, and it got me thinking it was time to start a new Tommy thread. For those who may only have heard his stunning acoustic playing, his electric stuff has a bit of an Eric Johnson vibe. Stevie's Blues (with Jack Jones)...

    Been taking lessons from Guy Van Duser at Berklee to develop my fingerstyle techniques. Was wondering if there were any folks here on jemsite who dabbled in fingerstyle. I've gotten to the point where I can play single lines almost as fast without a pick as with. Also been doing some banjo...

    I suspect a bunch of us know, met, was in a room with, did work for, gave a lesson to, or jammed with someone notable/famous. I thought it would be fun to have a thread dedicated to the purpose of 'bragging' about it. ;) This could be fun to watch. I'll go first. I know the Fuel guys...

    Hello, I've started playing electro acoustic a lot more lately, so I could do with an upgrade for my $100 Collins acoustic. I'm a Tommy Emmanuel fan, so I'd probably buy his acoustic but its way too much for me to pay, so I'd like something with similar specs: Solid Top Single Cutaway...

    SHREDFEST - Melbourne, August 17 I'll be playing at this event, along with Steve Turner and Conny D. We'll each be doing a set of face-melting shred, with the potential for a mega jam at the end like G3.

    Can anybody recommend any virtuso-type players on the acoustic? When I say that, I mean they specialise in acoustic and/or Spanish guitar, not like when Paul Gilbert picks up an acoustic 'cos he's an electric guy. Know what I mean?

    Hi All, I currently live in Slump City. There was a time a few years ago when I had a nice place in Shredsville, but due to maintenance issues I was evicted. My visa applications for a return to Shredsville keep getting rejected, but I really want back in. :roll: OK....now that could go...

    If you haven's sat and listened to all of Resolution, the latest CD from Any Timmons yet, you're life is lacking something that won't be filled until you do. Timmons has rocketed to the top of the heap. He is EJ, Petrucci, Vai, Satch all rolled up into one killer player. Listening to the CD...

    Hi, I've posted a 2 video's of Tommy Emmanuel & Joscho Stephan Trio jamming at the Windsor Arts Center. I'd never seen Tommy live before & I was standing 6 feet away from him. The entire set was minblowing especially it was not a scheduled performance, Tommy & Joscho entered the acoustic...

    Anyone have any recomendations for some good acoustic tunes? I've found myself reaching for my acoustic more and more lately, so I've been looking for some good inspiration. I have quite a few Unplugged albums (Nirvana, Both Pearl Jams, AIC, Coldplay, Eric Clapton, Radiohead) but I'm looking for...

    I took out all my babies and took a group shot. Even the Wife's Hello Kitty guitar is in the shot. The only downside is the Yari had broken a string. I just strung it last month too.

    Hello everyone, sorry if this is in the wrong topic. I have a radio show that occurs every Sunday morning from 5AM to 8AM Central Standard Time. It's on WNUR 89.3FM, just north of Chicago. Artists played in the past include Frank Zappa, Chris Opperman, Steve Vai, Tommy Emmanuel, Mats/Morgan...

    Forgive me. This waiting for my JEM7VWH to ship from Rich is killing me so I feel compelled to start a meaningless thread to help pass the time until she arrives. So just for the heck of it, who's your 12 favorite guitarists? Lets say we all love Vai and Satriani so you can't include them. I'm...
