[FINGERPICKIN’ GOOD] Australia’s finest guitarist is not Angus Young. Though not quite a household name, for some 40-odd years now, Tommy Emmanuel has been wowing everyone from your mom to your little brother who just got his first Suzuki guitar book with his effortlessly dextrous fingerpicking style. Emmanuel has played in his fair share of rock bands over the years—most notably Kiwi outfit Dragon—but is better known for his Chet Atkins (with whom he recorded the album The Day Finger Pickers Took Over the World in ’97; check it out if for no other reason than the amazing cover, featuring a cartoon of a Godzilla-size Emmanuel and Atkins destroying a city by shooting fire from their guitars)—influenced acoustic stylings, which he performs with a slightly orgasmic guitar face.
