That's gotta be tough being flanked by Tommy Emmanuel wagging and bopping on one side and some lady fanning on the other.

That was pretty incredible, thanks for sharing.

That was impressive - and as you said - in front of Tommy Emmaunuel! How'd he do it without screwing up at least once? And with those chubby, stubby fingers?

Ragtop, I'll meet you at the grill... that, or I'd better start practicing more...

Cindy Cashdollar is quite the talent also. I had the pleasure of seeing her in concert with Sonny Landreth.
