    The Man With The Green Thumb

    I recorded one of my favourite Tommy Emmanuel tunes yesterday. The right hand playing style is really awkward, but it's great fun once you get it. I love this song, it's got a great groove (when Tommy plays it) and a great melody - as does most of Tommy's stuff.

    Oh man, I love that style of fingerpicking!

    Really nice stuff dude.

    You are, Lyle. You are like an archtop, where the rest of us are flat.
