I've heard most of his jokes a million times but still laugh at all of them!   He is very much similar to Aussie comedians and I've heard him say he's studied them to be a better performer etc.  He's a showman, and a master of the craft of guitar playing.   God basically.    ;)

Actually TE is greater than God since EC is God and I reckon TE is the better player  ;D

The two best guitarist in the world are Tommy Emmanuel.

A Quote below from nashvillearts.com
.
The accolades thrown at Australian guitarist Tommy Emmanuel might seem a touch exaggerated and hard to believe. That is until you actually watch and hear him play. And then those accolades seem totally insufficient in capturing the enormity of his talent. Eric Clapton and Chet Atkins both said that he is the greatest guitarist they ever saw, and Todd Rundgren stated, “The two best guitarists in the world are Tommy Emmanuel.” And yet all that means very little to the Nashville-based guitarist. He’s way too busy, immersed in his love of music and performing, to stop and check the praise meter. He very modestly says, “It’s just what I do.” He just happens to do it better than anyone else.

Can those of us who don't have a Tommy E. selfie/story still hang out with you guys? The best I can come up with is bumping into Tim Pierce at a strip mall here in the Valley. I'm not a selfie dude so you'll have to take my word for it. :)
I saw TE live in concert 2 years ago and am going again (Covid permitting) in March next year. My son went on a 4 day TE workshop in Pitlochry in Scotland 3 years ago. I also have a photo of myself and family outside the Sydney opera house without TE. Please can I join the gang and hang out too?
