Watch the It's Never Too Late online guitar lesson by Tommy Emmanuel from It's Never Too Late Songbook

Let's break down "It's Never Too Late". The feeling of the song is gentle, yet it's really in the pocket when you're playing it. I consider this song a product of all the songwriters who inspire me. As Paul McCartney says, "You can't put out unless you take in." And he's absolutely right, he being one of several people who've influenced me (all of the Beatles in fact). If it weren't for composers like Neil Diamond, James Taylor, Carole King, Alison Krauss & Union Station, etc. to draw on, I couldn't have written a song like this. I also attribute some of what I've written here to the Irish music that I've heard over the years, as you'll hear in the tune.
