Watch the Hope Street online guitar lesson by Tommy Emmanuel from Certified Gems, Vol. 2
I'm going to play a newer song of mine, "Hope Street", written on the road. Hope Street is the name of the main street in Liverpool where I was staying and played at the Philharmonic Hall.
I had been touring England, and we'd been watching the George Harrison documentary, Living in a Material World by Martin Scorsese. George and his story, what he did and who he was, inspired me so much, so I wrote this song. When I got into Liverpool and saw the street sign, there was the name of my song! So, here it is.
