Thanks Dan. Awesome! Please post a version of you playing it up here - I’d love to hear it. My attempt is still very much a work in progress, and I’m still learning to play guitar, but I intend to get it down really well and post a more finished version of it here when I’m ready
For what it’s worth, I love Tommy Emmanuel’s playing - I purchased my first album of his when he was doing The Journey in the early 90s - so I’ve been listening to him for over 30 years, but I prefer the simpler Classical Gas version if I’m honest. Tommy is a showman of the highest order though and his main objective is to entertain. He certainly does that in this version! Mind blowing technique - I’ve also enjoyed the breakdowns of this performance too (see Guitar Teacher REACTS: Tommy Emmanuel "Classical Gas" [Mason Williams] - YouTube).
My favourite Tommy performance at the moment is his duet with Mike Dawes covering Somebody That I Used to Know (Mike Dawes & Tommy Emmanuel - Somebody That I Used to Know (2021) - YouTube). Both incredible players.
