Default Tommy Emmanuel - feeble covers/flops

I enjoyed the TE is hard thread and thought it would be funny to compare our attempts of playing some of his tunes.

Here's two short beginnings and one full cover (cringe) from tunes of his Only album. These are the easy ones

These are from years ago and my recordings were worse than they are now,

Beginning of Since We Met (recorded late 2007):


Beginning of Those Who Wait (recorded late 2007):


Stay Close to Me (full song recorded late 2007):

Some seriously great playing here, Barry! The emotion and subtlety of your picking in Stay Close to Me was beautiful. Some very complex pieces and you not only nailed them, you made them your own.

I don't have any TE instrumentals to share yet but I'll get to work.

I thought my playing was on the lame side, but thanks! I wonder how long it would take to finish one of his tunes now,

haha. I don't think it would take you that long. But for me, on the other hand, if they make some major breakthroughs in medical science and we get to add another 100 years onto our lifespan, I might get there too
