Tommy Emmanuel - Endless Road

Tommy Emmanuel - Endless Road

Part of Tommy Emmanuel’s biography is that he is one of only three Certified Guitar Players (CGP) in the world.  Jerry Reed and John Knowles are the others, in case you’re wondering.  I’m not really sure what one has to do to become a CGP but I’m telling you this, if anyone deserves that title, it’s Tommy Emmanuel.

“Endless Road” is almost all instrumental with mostly folk and classical sounds.  He moves easily from a Chet Atkins song (“Chet’s Ramble”) to standards like “Mona Lisa” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”  Also included on this album are two songs written by Jerry Reed, “Today Is Mine” and “Struttin’.” 

One thing you’ll notice about Emmanuel is that he is a tremendous guitarist.  The most remarkable song on this album is “Tall Fiddler,” a bluegrass song.  Tommy basically plays every part you would expect to hear in a bluegrass song.  Only he doesn’t need any accompaniment.  He does it all on his guitar.  The amount of notes he packed into that song is dizzying.  You may have to listen to that one more than once just to know you’re hearing it right.

On some songs like “Morning Aire,” Emmanuel reminds me of Adrian Legg.  There is one big difference between the two though.  Emmanuel doesn’t run nearly as many effects as Adrian Legg.  What they have in common is that they both produce extraordinarily clean and amazing sounds.

“Endless Road” is an amazing album by an amazing artist.  You don’t have to be a guitar player to appreciate this album but I think all you guitar players out there will really enjoy this CD.  There aren’t to many guys out there that can pick a guitar like Tommy Emmanuel.
