Tommy Emmanuel from the MDA telethon (fixed, video now viewable)

I don't want to turn this into a music blog since there are enough of those in the blogosphere; however, I came across this video today of Tommy Emmanuel's performance on the MDA Telethon over the Labour Day weekend.  Halfway through this video, he's joined by stellar guitarists Frank Vignola & Vinny Raniolo who provide some great accompaniment.  It's yet another example of why Emmanuel is the world's top finger picker.  Enjoy!

(Grammy nominated Australian guitarist Tommy Emmanuel performs "Guitar Boogie" & "Avalon" at the 2011 MDA Telethon, Sunday, Sept. 4, live from the South Point Hotel in Las Vegas. The show's theme this year was "Make a Muscle, Make a Difference" for MDA.)

Makes my ancient old riffs back in the day look distinctly amateur!

These guys are all incredible players,but like Tom says, what keeps him going is the fact that he has two daughters at university in England and he's paying the bills!!!! :-)
