We all know how difficult it is to master the guitar. When people first start to learn the instrument, usually they will master the basics on an acoustic model, and then transfer what they’ve learned and expand more on an electric. At first listen, it may seem like the acoustic guitar can be a little limiting to what you can actually do, but this guitar master rightfully proves that wrong!
Australian guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel took to the stage for an acoustic jam session you won’t ever forget! The 8-minute epic shred-fest includes licks from Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and other legendary riffs. The most noteworthy, are the Vaughan inspired licks in the very beginning of the jam. They sound like they come straight from Stevie’s legendary stratocaster, and will bring back that Texas-blues nostalgia.
It’s incredible to see all of these riffs being played on the acoustic guitar. His hands are moving lightening fast, and the groove in this jam is just fantastic! Any rock fan will greatly appreciate this!
