Watch the Certified Gems Vol. 2 online guitar lesson by Tommy Emmanuel from Certified Gems, Vol. 2
Hi, I'm Tommy Emmanuel, and welcome to Certified Gems Vol. 2. This time we've picked songs for you - some of them I've been performing at my concerts for quite a while, some of which people have written to me and asked to do an instructional video about. We'll look at songs like "Hope Street", "Waltzing Matilda" - Australia's "unofficial" national anthem - and "Amazing Grace", a beautiful and spiritual song. We'll also look at "Stevie's Blues", dedicated to the great Stevie Ray Vaughn, and "Dixie McGuire", which I recorded with Chet Atkins.
First I'll tell you a little about the song - where it comes from, why I wrote it - and then I'll perform the song for you and break it down and teach you how to play it. Check it out, grab your guitar, and let's get going!
