TOMMY EMMANUEL C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player)
The Mystery, Tommy Emmanuel's sixth US album, was inspired by Emmanuel's travels; each of the album's compositions is a musical snapshot or sojourn - a journey that brings us together with places and people - a journey into self discovery.
This transcription book shows all twelve tunes on the CD note-for-note in standard notation and tablature. Also included are detailed performance notes of each tune. 136 pages.
Tommy's compositions and aITangements cover many styles and techniques. If you have studied the Mel Bay books for Tommy's CD's Only and Endless Road, you already have a head start in learning his mu ic. The tunes for this project are heard on the CD The Mystery. Also you can study the Mel Bay project, Emmanuel Labor with Tommy's discussions of pieces from the above three CD's. From The Mystery Tommy play and discusses "The Mystery", "Gameshow Rag/Cannonball Rag", "The Diggers' Waltz", "Lewis and Clark", and "Antonella's Birthday". There will be some slight variations between the video performance and the recorded tunes. Although he may not playa tune in performance exactly the same way each lime, these transcription will allow you to learn the recorded version, and will give you insight into his methods. These tunes range in difficulty from intermediate to very difficult. There are a few difficult stretches and also Tommy's technique involves some innovative moves, such as fretting the 5th string with the thumb. But whether or not ou perform these tunes, most of the enjoyment comes from understanding them and playing them for their beaut). Some tunes are played with a thumbpick, and others are played without a pick, resulting in a softer sound. Others are played in a hybrid style, using a flat pick, allowing for strong rhythm and interwoven melody note With this style, the right-hand index finger is no longer available for melody. The melody is produced by the pick and the middle and ring fingers. This technique may be difficult for you if you are based in traditional fingerpicking, but it is well worth the effort to learn it. If you read musical notation, the tablature will still be helpful as it points toward left-hand position on the guitar neck. And if you are relying on tablature, remember that left-hand fingering is found in the notation. Learning the hybrid style requires understanding the information given in the tablature. I have tried to indicate the pick stroke directions that are most important, while trying to avoid repeating the stroke directions to reduce the amount of clutter in the tablature. In the hybrid tyle, the thumb and first finger hold the pick, and in accord with classical notation this is shown by a "p". The middle finger will be "m" and the ring finger will be "a". These letters will be stacked when the middle and/or the ring finger pluck notes at the same time as the pick. At other times the pick (thumb and first finger unit) and ...

Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel has a professional career that spans over four decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. A household name in his native Australia, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Tommy's unique style - he calls it simply "finger style" – is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Guitar legend Chet Atkins was one of the first to inspire Emmanuel to pick up the guitar as a child. Decades later Atkins himself became one of Emmanuel's biggest fans. In 1999, Chet honored Tommy Emmanuel with the title of "Certified Guitar Player" for his lifetime contribution to the instrument, a rare honor shared by only three other people in the world (Jerry Reed, Steve Wariner and John Knowles). Atkins eventually recorded with Tommy in 1996 on 'The Day the Finger Pickers Took Over the World", for which Emmanuel received his first Grammy award nomination. This was also Atkins last recording.
After a recent recuperative rest, resulting from an exhausting touring schedule, Tommy is now completely rejuvenated and embarking on a full tour schedule in 2008. A new double live CD and DVD, "Center Stage" filmed in High Definition and recorded at the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico, California will be commercially released in Spring '08. The DVD portion will also air on Public Television affiliates all over the United States. Every element of modern technology was used in the production of both the DVD and CD. Tomm's record producer, Kim Person, recorded and mixed the audio tracks, while long-time Sierra Nevada video producer/ director Peter Barlow tied the entire package together in state-of-the-art quality. It makes for a stunning package, both aurally and visually. The double disc Live CD "Center Stage" contains many fan show-stoppers, including Emmanuel's BeatIes Medley, Mombasa, and Initiation - the aboriginal tribute song that has evolved over the years and never sounds the same on any recording - or during any show. Tommy also introduces four never-before recorded tracks, "Ruby's Eyes", "Lenny Bro''', "The Jolly Swagman" and "Papa George" (inspired by George Harrison). Also, included are several arrangements of popular traditional tunes like "House of the Rising", "Nine Pound Hammer", "Amazing Grace" - and for his Japanese fans, "Sukiyaki" This new CD is a great mix of the rare, the new, the traditional and the favorites. Emmanuel's music and life are legendary in Australia. He began playing guitar at age 4, by learning to play by ear without any formal instruction. Emmanuel and his older brother Phil were child prodigies, starting their professional career in the 1960s. By the age of six, Tommy was already working as a professional musician. Shortly after his father's death in 1966, the Emmanuel family was approached by Australian country music star Buddy Williams, who took the family on the road until they were forced by the Australian child welfare department to stop traveling. The Emmanuel children were then sent to a regular school. During these years, Tommy was playing in "The Trailblazers" (with siblings Chris on drums and Virginia on slide guitar) on weekends. He also taught guitar and made numerous television appearances in musical competitions. Emmanuel's first brush with fame came when The Trailblazers won two televised talent contests and produced an EP. He and his siblings worked hard ...
Antonella is one of my dearest friends from Soave, Italy and I wrote it early one morning as the golden sun
streamed through the windows onto my bed. Antonella was making breakfast downstairs and when I found out
it was her birthday, I dedicated it to her, with all my heart. She's a true friend.
Tune the 5th string down to G and the 6th string down to D. The tune is played with a flat pick in a hybrid
style, using the pick ("p") and the middle finger ("m"), and the ring finger ("a"). These letters will be stacked
over the corresponding strings in the tablature. Natural harmonics are used extensively. With your left-hand
finger lightly touch the string at the fret indicated in brackets, <7> for example. In the notation the notehead
will be diamond shaped. Then strike the string with the pick to obtain the harmonic or chiming sound.
Remember that the harmonics should always ring freely, creating a "cascade" effect. In order to notate the tune
correctly, the first note of the song is played as the last half of the last beat of the first measure. That is necessary in order to be in the right place when you play the last note of measure 9. That harmonic on the 5th string
could be considered the first real note of the melody, but it continues into the next measure with an eighth note
rest. There is another way to think of it. If you are tapping your foot, you start just after the first note of the
tune, and by the beginning of measure 10 you will be tapping on the the tied note, and the melody will fall in
place "in time" throughout the rest of the tune. As usual with this style, pay attention to the pick strokes,
for downstroke and "V" for upstroke. Sometimes, as in measure 11, a downstroke can play many strings in a
strum motion. In measure 21, the right-hand finger letters are stacked over the notation in the first beat. meaning
that the pick plays the third string, the middle finger plucks the second string, and the ring finger pluck
the first string. For the last beat of that measure it is understood that the pick plays the slide on the fifth string.
and it is written that the middle and ring fingers play the other two strings. On the lowest string of a chord.
there is not always room to show the downstroke symbol. (And that is the case throughout the book.)

Mel Bay Publications presents a collection of arrangements and original compositions from Australian guitarist Tommy Emmanuel's 2005 CD, Endless Road. Not for the faint of heart, this outstanding collection of intermediate to advanced solos includes two pop standards (Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Mona Lisa) plus thirteen of Tommy's incredible compositions.
You’ll gain insights into Tommy's playing style through note-for-note notation and tablature transcribed by Mark Pritcher who has added suggested chord progressions to each tune to serve as a harmonic guide to the player. In addition, detailed performance notes and select chord grid diagrams further enhance accessibility to the works of this masterful guitar tunesmith.
Tommy’s music incorporates thumbpicking, jazzy single lines, chord-melody arranging techniques, complex use of harmonics and more. Playing through this collection will give you a whole new appreciation for your guitar!
This piece was written during a time of great change in Tommy's life and has many moods and movements. Tommy says, "This song is about ajourney. It tells us that as we go down the road we encounter problems and changes and we weather through them and then get back on track." The song is played with a flat pick, and uses"hybrid picking" to attain a form of fingerpicking using a flat pick instead of a thumbpick. Tommy gets a groove going from the beginning with a constant droning strum, interspersed with melody that is played both with the pick and fingers. The pick is held with the thumb and first finger, leaving the second and third fingers to help with the melody. As the song begins, you must target the melody notes with the pick. If that is hard for you, you can use your second and third fingers to pluck the melody notes. I have made some suggestions for the strum pattern. "p" refers to the thumb and first finger holding the pick. "mil indicates the middle or second finger. "i" indicates the ring finger. The bold bracket pointing down indicates a pick stroke in the down direction, towards the floor, and the "v" symbol indicates an up stroke with the pick. In the third measure for instance, the bracket over the bass note shows a down stroke with "p" and the third string is played with the ring finger. This general technique is used anytime there is a bass note and a separate melody note. The "X" indicates either a right hand percussive strike at the strings, or a percussive strum across strings that are dampened and muted by the left hand. In measure 17 the F#on the first string is part of a transitional D chord, although all you hear is the melody note. At measure 59, the second "movement" begins, with a lyrical dancing melody, and much pick work. At measure 101, the arrow pointing down indicates a strum from the high to the low strings, and the tension builds. By measure 107, there is more use of both middle and ring fingers on rolling chords. The big strum at the end of 119 takes us into the key change to E. At measure 130 there is the first of three almost identical ''Django" style chromatic runs, the last of which takes you back to the key of G. Hints of the opening theme are heard once more, and at measure 173 we are back to the main melody. Give it a try and if you are not comfortable with the flat pick, give it a try with a thumbpick.
Tommy Emmanuel is a phenomenal guitarist. He has been recognized internationally for his virtuosity in playing all types of music on the guitar. Besides that, he is an entertainer, and he makes people happy. His audience is immediately aware that they are in the presence of a very gifted guitarist, and the "musical powers that be" are fast becoming aware of his gift. In the late 1990's he recorded a CD with his mentor, guitar legend Chet Atkins, and devoted more time to touring in the United States. He moved his home from his native Australia to England, and recently to the U.S., and chances are that he will be performing somewhere near you before too long. His compositions seem simple to the ear, but are incredibly complex when analyzed. The fifteen instrumental tunes from the "Endless Road" CD represent many styles. You will hear bluegrass, jazz, pop standards, slow tunes and very fast tunes, and you will hear music asTommy hears it. Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished player, I know you will enjoy working on these tunes. In Tommy's playing there is always more going on than meets the eye or ear. He uses multiple techniques and tricks to get his unique sound. He sometimes mutes strings with the palm of his right hand, and sometimes with the fingertips of his left hand. When he is playing with a thumbpick, he may strike the strings with the pick, brush down with the far side of his right hand fingertips, or brush up with the near side of the right hand fingertips. He often uses unexpected chord fingerings, especially if it facilitates the movement to the next chord or position. It is rare for him to have unanchored notes. In other words pay attention to the chord symbols or diagrams. Often the music shows you the notes that are being played, but just as is important are the "notes" that are not played. No matter how many notes are sounded, there may be other notes being fretted that are not plucked with the right hand, but are important all the same. Tommy's tunes usually do not require a back up guitar, but I have provided the chords as I hear them, and sometimes I have "created" chords based on one or two melody notes. Chords provide a framework for analysis. Many of the tunes have key changes, and you can follow the changes with the chords. Usually the fretboard diagrams included above the music are for hand position only and are not meant to show a specific chord. The gist of a tune is the same each time he plays it, but the tunes on this CD were improvised to some extent, and thus must be recreated "by ear". Also Tommy is known to use different fingerings in the same tune, if it helps the playing of the song. For instance an "A" chord at the second fret may be fingered differently depending on what comes after it. Also for some tunes Tommy uses a flat pick and fingers, a technique sometimes called "hybrid" picking. This may present a problem for those of you who are strictly fingerpickers. But give it a try, and if you still find it awkward, you may find that those tunes are also playable in a "fingerstyle" manner...

Dictation Notes with Tommy Emmanuel Getting Started on Fingerstyle ...
• Make sure your guitar is set up so it is comfortable for you to play.
• Choose a good set of strings
• Get in tune ...
• If you have an electronic tuner and you just tune acoustically, that is fine.
• If you plug into a tuner, make sure you turn the microphone off.
• When you have a pick up in your guitar and you plug into the tuner, put the midrange flat out or on the lever,
whichever you understand. That gives the tuner, a real accurate tuner, a sparky signal and you will be able
to get your guitar really and truly in tune.
• It is always a good idea to practice tuning up as well as playing the guitar so you can get use to your guitar
sounding in tune. After a while you will find that you will end up training your own ear into what the sound
of being in tune really is.
NAILS ... ACRYLIC NAILS, NO NAILS OR FINGERPICKS
• What works for you?
• What sound are you going for?
CHOICE OF THUMBPICK
• I use Dunlop medium thumb pick ... not too big, small, thin, or thick ... it is right in the middle, like a
plectrum, but it is wrapped around your thumb.
• Some people use the slick picks, which are thinner.
• It depends on what kind of dynamic or strength you play with. Personally, if I use a slick pick, it would
probably fly across the room after the first bass note.
• I like something that hangs on to my thumb, doesn't make it turn blue on the end and it sticks on your thumb
• The thumb pick ~hould be pushed back so when you look at your thumb it is covering the end of your nail,
where it meets the flesh, first knuckle joint. When I look down at my thumb, it looks like there is 1/2 inch
of thumb sticking out.
• The thumb has to be independent to the fingers. It is important that you develop the thumb first before you
do anything with the fingers. You have to start training it. This takes time and dedication.
• In the key C. pick C, F, and G to play. Put your fingers down on the place of the guitar where the fret guard
is, down at the mouth. I rest the heal of my palm, the corner of the heal down and I take a little bit of
resonance out of the string to give it that music sound. Leave your fingers down and start with the A string
on the 3rd fret of the C chord. When you can get this slow and steady and use to it, go to C, G, and C.
• It is very important that with each chord change, I start the bass note on the root note. When I am playing
in C, the first note you play is C. Whatever chord you are playing, the first bass note should be the root note,
the note of that chord.
• Practice slowly. Keep the fingers down. Do in any key, E, A, G, B, A ...
• Practice until you can get a good feel, groove going and playing the thumb without the fingers coming up.
Get the thumb going first.
• It is important for you to become good at tapping your foot when you play. Chet use to say, pat your foot. It
will help you with your groove and your time. It will put a bit of bounce and confidence into your playing
and timing. You need to have a good time.
• I always tap my foot on 1 and 3. The only time I don't tap on 1 and 3 is in an extreme situation where I
would playa song where for me to get the right feel on it I would tap on the other beat or where I would tap
NOTE FOR NOTE TRANSCRIBED SOLOS FROM THE ALBUM BY TOMMY EMMANUEL Certified Guitar Player.
Tommy Emmanuel has electrified audiences across the globe. This book contains note-for-note transcriptions of solos from Emmanuel's album Only in standard notation and tablature. Transcribed by Mark Pritcher.
TOMMY EMMANUEL Hailed by Chet Atkins as "Without a doubt, one of the greatest guitar players on the planet," Tommy Emmanuel has electrified audiences from Steve Kaufman's diminutive Palace Theater in Maryville, Tennessee to the closing ceremony of the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Having concertized throughout much of the civilized world, this dynamic performer who, in his words "happens to be a pretty good guitarist," made his way to the fabled competition in Winfield Kansas as a guest artist for the first time in 2000. Shortly before Tommy's performances there, parking lot pickers were said to have ceasedjamming and moved trance like in droves to a venue designed to hold perhaps 500, now packed with three times that number ali to hear Tommy Emmanuel play an acoustic guitar! Although he has acted as a mentor to a dedicated few young guitarists in his native Australia, Tommy seems destined to make his mark performing on the world stage. His impeccable taste, flawless technique, and engaging personality have inspired fans and critics alike.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I sincerely hope that you enjoy learning these works of art from Tommy's CD "QNLY". Many thanks to Tommy for the joy that his music brings usoThe folks at Mel Bay have been very gracious in providing space for the entire tunes. There is enough variation in the choruses to make "repeats" impractical and I couldn't bear to leave anything out. Italian guitarist Daniele Bazzani had worked on these tunes independently and was kind enough to supply me with his notes early on, and that made my task easier. Thanks to Brett Wood for help with some "impossible" licks. These tunes vary in difficulty, and please remember that interpreting notes and positions by ear can be subjective at best! Feel free to let me know if you have questions about the music. And very special thanks to my wife Carol and daughter Katelynn, who allowed me to take on this project. I Mark Pritcher, Tennessee
THOSE WHO WAIT Played with a plectrum (straight pick) 6th string = D; guitar tuned down 1/2 step
"We learn so much in life/ dont we? Ufe is our teacher. Ufe is the school/ and if we're
smart we learn the lessons and learn from each other. I think one of the hardest things
that I've ever had to learn is patience; and trust and faith in believing that things are
going to work out. That's really hard to learn/ to be patient. That's what this song is
about. About truly trusting that if your motives are right/ and everything about you is
heading in the right direction/ then there is no way that you can go wrong. /'
The plectrum is held by the thumb and first finger, and you then use the pick and your
second and third fingers to play the strings. This is sometimes called "hybrid picking".
For a given tune, and a desired effect, the plectrum gives a different sound than the
thumb pick. But if you have never played in this style it can be a challenge. Take it slow
and easy and you will get it! It is not practical to put a plectrum direction on each note,
but you can lay your right hand on the strings, and get a feel for what strings the pick
contacts, and which strings your second and third fingers touch comfortably. If this
style is new to you, go through the tune first using thumb and three fingers, and when
you are familiar with it, you can start on the hybrid technique. It is helpful to study
Tommy's performance videos or DVD's and watch his right hand. Also the fingering is
often critical. In places, fingering can be an individual thing, and you play the way your
left hand feels the best. But most of the time that I have indicated fingering, it is
because it is as Tommy intended it to be played. What seems to be awkward at times,
usually turns out to be brilliant because he has a way of making the melodic ideas flow
together, due in large part to the choice of fingering.
In this tune the tempo is fairly even throughout. It starts with natural harmonics at the
seventh fret, as you lay your first finger across the neck. Tommy uses his left-hand
thumb often to fret the 6th string. This is the case with the opening motif, starting
with the bass in measure 4. For the most part, let notes ring and sustain whenever possible,
even if it is not indicated in the music. Tommy's left hand reach is remarkable, as
you can tell from the five fret stretch in measure 26. Measure 32 has one of the awkward
fingerings on the hammer-on that will take some practice! The left hand thumb
is put to use again for the passage starting in measure 37. In measure 82, there is a
quick natural harmonic on the fifth string, and then you use your left hand to play the
EMMANUEL TOMMY, SOLO GUITAR STYLE. Paul Hedman, transcriptions by Peter Pik. Tommy Emmanuel may simply be the greatest guitarist alive. A child prodigy, and possibly Australia's best-kept secret, Tommy is rapidly receiving the worldwide recognition he deserves. A monstrous jazz, rock and blues guitarist, Tommy has a special affinity for solo acoustic guitar in the great tradition of Chet Atkins. So much so, in fact, that Chet Atkins himself has bestowed upon Tommy the coveted title C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player).
In this book you will receive intensive, up-close lessons in solo guitar: "boom-chic" style, cascading harmonica (a la Lenny Breau), moving bass lines (check out "Lady Madonna"), Travis picking and much more. And for the first time a CD has been included so you can hear Tommy play all of these breathtaking arrangements. Titles include: Amy; Blue Moon; Cascading Harmonics; Countrywide; Day Tripper; Dixie McGuire; Freight Train; Lady Madonna; Limehouse Blues; Since We Met; A Taste of Honey; Tom's Thumb; Trambone; Up From Down Under; Windy and Warm. 204 pages.

Notation and Tablature explanation
Grammy-nominated fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel has toured in Europe, Asia, South America, and the United States, bringing his music from the Australian outback to the rest of the world and creating legions of new fans in the process. None other than the incredible Chet Atkins has referred to him as "One of the greatest guitarists in the world," and Tommy is quick to acknowledge Chet as his principal inspiration. Modestly referring to himself as "an entertainer who happens to play the guitar," Tommy captivates his audiences with his humor, charisma and musicianship, delivering knockout performances around the globe. Tommy's energy and the ideal acoustics of the Sheldon Concert Hall make this a video performance to be cherished. This DVD features nearly two hours of performance, including all of the material from both of the VHS volumes entitled Tommy Emmanuel in Concert! Live at the Historic Sheldon Auditorium.
