    This guy doesn't play bass...he fingerpicks an acoustic guitar.

    Check out his "Boogie" video on YouTube.

    Skip the first six minutes, as he talks for awhile before he starts...

    He adds some humor too.....

    An Australian........

    Saw a special of his on PBS. Yes he is awesome. Used to be a drummer. You can kinda tell.

    His live shows are amazing. Even though he's off the charts good, he considers himself an entertainer first (at least for his live shows). And you can tell.
  5. Mr. Emmanuel is one inspirational player. His touch is simply amazing.

  9. I love his playing. He really angers traditionalists. That makes me like him even more.
