Interview: Tommy Emmanuel, fingerpicking technique guitarist, Ted-talks,

Tommy Emmanuel plays the guitar by ear. He neither reads or writes music. He learned to play the guitar from his mother who had learned to play from a friend when she was a girl growing up on a dairy farm near Brisbane, Australia. As a teenager she took her guitar to the train station in Brisbane to play and sing for troops departing for World War II, “to send the soldiers off with love.”
