    He remains a stunning guitarist - talent, skills beyond anything imaginable at times. And less hammy than he has been n the past.
    If you get the chance, see him while you can.

    My son and I saw him last year, if he comes back to Bakersfield we'll see him again this year. I never minded Tommy's being hammy either, it's just part of who Tommy is. I've been following him on you tube for more than ten years, it was one of those lifetime things to finally get to see him. No disappointment there when I did, he's everything you see on youtube and more.

    I'm getting tickets to see him in February in Atlanta. Don't want to miss it this time!

    Nice to see you MandyMarie! Tommy truly is a genius, and he's been that way a long, long time.

    I've seen Tommy five times now (which is amazing for the entertainment-rationed UK!) and he gets better every time. His playing skills are second to none and he's a great entertainer. The last time I saw him was 2016, so I'm hoping he'll come here again soon. If you're reading this, Tommy.... ;)

    For our second time to see TE, we caught him in a small venue in Lubbock back in December - 2nd row seats. It was an amazing show and our close seats allowed us to hear the Maton guitars acoustically as well. Amazing stuff - and he remains the consummate entertainer and post-show nice guy.

    See him early and often, if you can.

    Greatest living guitar player in the world today. No one, & I mean NO ONE else comes close.
