how much do you think Andy McKee will play? I think unfortunatly he won't play very much as he is jst the support act really. Although i suppose seeing either of them at all is good enough.

I'm still recovering from seeing Tommy live. My ego has never really been the way it was; he replaced with a desire to get better.

Plus the show was beyond mindblowing. Still the best show I've been to ever been to (if you can stand that hyperbole - it's true though!). Nothing else has compared.

Went to see them both last night, awesome show.

I'm not a huge fan of Andy but he played well last night and it was enjoyable. Off the top of my head;

Art of Motion
Africa
Drifting
Rylynn (My favourite song of his, and he nailed it last night).
Ebony coast
Some duet he normally does with Don Ross, he did it on his own.
The friend I never met (on his harp guitar)
Some impro duo with Tommy.

Then Tommy came out and he absolutely blew everyone away. It's hard to say but he has adanced technically over the last 12 months. I thought he was good when I saw him last year. Now he's just on a different level.

Most of his songs are from the new album (the mystery) and were beautifully played. I was hoping he'd play Lewis and Clarke, it's one of the few Tommy pieces I've finished working on, and he did. He also played Questions which is probably his best song ever IMO. To finish the night he played Tall fiddler, which was note perfect and absolutely immense. I would have liked him to play the mystery but I'm very happy with what I got!

Biggest highlights;

Classical gas: Went straight into this from windy and warm. A hard key change I know But he played it so fast and so hard. That song (on youtube) is what made me pick up the guitar. Sends shivers down my back.

Mombasa: He played excellent percussive guitar for about 3 minutes, then launched into this so hard. The crowd erupted when he hit the intro. Most people there were first timers but the emotion he built up was unbelievable.

Finally, initiation. If you have never seen it live you can't understand! Youtube is crap! He added so much to it since last year, he does this shouting thing now which echoes around, was really intense.

Also I noticed he enjoyed it much more this year, there was improv all over the palce, and it was absolutely perfect every time.

After the show, being the fantastic guy he is, he came out to meet fans and sign things. I took along a telecaster pickguard, and made my brother take along our copy of the mystery. The best bit was I got into a conversation with him.

I shook his hand, said it was even better than last year etc etc, then asked him to sign my thing. He said it was hard because his fingers hurt so much! I asked what he'd done and he showed me and talked me through it! They were torn up, bleeding in places, from playing so hard. You havn't seen callouses until you've seen this guys hands. After that I had my photo taken with him, and he asked me what I played on my tele. I said I played fingerstyle mainly but if Bruce Springsteen otherwise.

He gave me a smile and a thumbs up then started singing 'She's the one.' He asked me if I did any of that and I said 'Not quite' at which point he laughed, so now I can say Tommy Emmanuel has laughed at my joke. As I was walking away I said I expected some Springsteen covers next year, and he laughed at that. I said thank-you and left.

Amazing man, they say never meet your idol but I am so glad I did. Now have a beautifully signed pickguard and CD cover.

The best part? He's already booked for 30th November 2008.

He didn't have his harp guitar with him when i saw him. The bit at the end when you meet them was just like that as well.

The harp guitar song wasn't even that good.

The best part about it was when Tommy leant into the microphone and said 'size matters' under his voice.

Andy didn't come out afterwards, just Tommy, but like I said, I don't really care about Andy
