Default Tommy Emmanuel - (The Man With The) Green Thumb - Cover

Hi everyone,

Here’s my cover of (The Man With The) Green Thumb by Tommy Emmanuel. One of my favorites by TE! I hope you enjoy listening :-)



All the best & have a good weekend!

Basil

Well done! That looked like a very challenging arrangement to learn. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my cover. Glad you like the feel! I tried to approximate Tommy's playing as best as I can :-)

that was well done.

the thing you come to notice really quick when you are trying to do TE material, you kind of need big hands for some of it.

Which I don't have so, I notice that short coming immediately...

Thanks a lot and true! TE has huge and very flexible hands. Plus, he really likes to fret two strings with one finger and uses the thumb to not only fret the E string but also the A string, which both can be very tricky ...
