    Hey B-Hatters:

    Here is a video of my favorite acoustic guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel, doing
    an amazing rendition of the classic, "Somewhere Over The Rainbow".

    He is one-of-a-kind and his style is truly magical, as you will see!

    Relax & Enjoy! :) - "Wiz"

    My favourite guitarist too. The guy is just a monster. Search for "guitar boogie" on YouTube and see what a man with only 10 fingers and a guitar can do...

    Beautiful. I usually listen to Instrumental music.



    Also why can one only include one video? Annoying restriction. :)

    Yes . . . Stanley is great as well. I like his various versions of some of the Beatle's classics.

    So many great musicians out there. There is always something new to discover :)

    I found my way to Tommy a couple years ago when I went on one of those awesome Youtube journeys where you find amazing music no one has really heard about. My first such find was Andy McKee and his song Rylynn. Such a beautiful song...

    He has one called "The Very Best of Tommy Emmanuel". It's a great introduction to his music.

    You can do a Google search for it. I think you can get it on Amazon, amongst other places.

    Enjoy! :)
