This guy seems to be getting the hang of it.

Ol' Tommy's leg bouncing is as good as his guitar playing.

Awe, anybody who practiced 12 hours a day for 30 years, stayed focused, and was born with a bucket load of talent could do that. [:I]

That was absoulutely amazing playing. It's hard enough playing fast and accurate but when you're playing fast and playing two differnet parts at the same time.......I wish I could do that!!!

I was very lucky to attend a seminar with him a couple of years ago and sat on the fron row about 5 feet away from him.  even that close, I couldn't see how he was doing things.  The guy next to me asked him how he played the intro to a piece call "Those Who Wait" of the Cd called "Only".  He stood in front of us and showed us in very slow motion.

He is a really nice chap as well.  Even though he has played all his life and has an amazing talent he is very clear that the talent is for anyone and that he is only looking after it at the moment!

God, Tommy is awesome. Not only is he extremely talented with the guitar, he's got great showmanship as well. Kind of also reminds me of SRV with that guitar boogie number.
