Emmanuel’s Journey

Will the real Tommy Emmanuel please stand up?

2 x Grammy nominee and dead set Aussie legend guitarist Tommy Emmanuel is a busy man of late. While he is touring non-stop around the US and Canada plucking those delicious strings,  he’s also laying out YouTube videos, re-producing his well-known tracks.

The one that caught my eye was his 1993 hit – The Journey – my favourite.

In this video, he performs multiple layers of his tune, using acoustic and electric guitars, splicing the video together.

The result is 3 minutes and 50 seconds of awesomeness.

Feel free to compare the original 1993 version here.

While you’re at it, check out his site and see his other video and music content – he might be in your neck of the woods too. Make sure you get a request for Classical Gas on your local radio station too.
