A differnt type of thumbstyle player

I was looking for versions of Moon River on Youtube and found this version by Henry Mancini's touring guitar player. I really enjoyed watching it.

How do guys like him ever find those jazzy sounding chordings? I'm sure even Richard Smith and Tommy Emmanuel wonder about that even though they could re-produce them after a listening or two.

Check out Tommy playing Moon River on his new CD "Little by Little." He has two versions... one with vocal and one instrumental. He's been playing it live for a while so there is probably a version on YouTube.

I love the way Tommy follows the melody... like a singer. It one of those things we all learned from Chet.

I watched several of Tommy's videos of Moon River. He has his usual amazing touch and, you're right, he has a really tasteful arrangement. I enjoyed them very much. Here is a link to one of the versions.

Ben is home for Christmas. This morning he was watching Tommy on youtube and commented that the more he watches Tommy's solos the more he understands what it means to (as Tommy says) "think like a singer." BtW, John, I got Ben the Haba Na Haba CD for Christmas; we are enjoying it all, including your stuff. Congratulations.
