Watch the Smokey Mountain Lullaby: 5 online guitar lesson by Tommy Emmanuel from Little by Little
This song contains a beautiful, beautiful melody written by Chet Atkins, and this was a piece that Chet and I recorded as a duet back in the mid nineties on our album, The Day Fingerpickers Took Over The World. This was a song that got me my first Grammy nomination, with many thanks to Chet.
However, the version that we're going to go through here is the version that I have kind of rearranged to work as a solo piece. It's a little bit opposite to the original "duet" way
The other thing I want to tell you about this song is that the tuning is the same tuning as The Tall Fiddler, The Cowboy's Dream, Antonella's Birthday, and this is normal guitar tuning except that the A string is down to G and the E string is down to D. It's almost a Hawaiian sounding tuning.
