Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel, a household name in his native Australia, he has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. The legendary guitarist has a professional career that spans five decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. Tommy's unique style - he calls it simply "finger style" - is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Rather than using a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drum parts, Tommy plays all that - and more - on one guitar. Guitar legend Chet Atkins was one of the first to inspire Emmanuel to try this "fingerpicker" style as a child. Decades later, Atkins himself became one of Emmanuel's biggest fans.
