Watch the Halfway Home: 1 online guitar lesson by Tommy Emmanuel from Little by Little
I wrote this song in Thailand while on holiday. I was just messing around with the guitar on this day, and I noticed that within a couple chords there were two octaves, so I started strumming and it sounded slightly oriental. I really, really liked the sound, and I proceeded to compose the whole song.
The reason I called the song Half Way Home is because it occurred to me that no matter where I am on the planet, it seems I'm always halfway home from Australia. It's a very inspired little piece. It's one of those songs that as a composer and a player, I kind of wrestled a bit with it because it was unfolding in such a nice way that I thought maybe it was too sweet. Eventually I tried doing all sorts of things with it, as a composer and a player, I tried to make it a bit more clever. It didn't work.
Eventually I decided it was fine the way it was originally, and I practiced it over and over until I started to really enjoy hearing and playing the song. Hope you enjoy it too!
