Fretboard Journal Live: Tommy Emmanuel and John Knowles

On this installment of the Fretboard Journal Live, we talk to Tommy Emmanuel and John Knowles, two of the three living recipients of Chet Atkins’ CGP (Certified Guitar Player) award. We hear a bit from each artist about how they approach fingerstyle guitar, their preferred gear (a Maton for Emmanuel, a Kirk Sand-built guitar for Knowles), the duo record they’re working on and much more. We also get a beautiful duo version of “Somewhere” from West Side Story.
