    He certainly is! I’m a big fan of his too. He mentioned you awhile back and recommended I get in touch with you for some lessons. I just bought the first Jump Blues video as an introduction to this type of playing. I’ve always admired Country Swing and Rockabilly players from afar but was always too intimidated to ask anyone to teach me what they were doing.

    I became a huge fan of your playing that night and it was a pleasure to meet you.

    Hi everyone, Todd from Lake Forest, CA here. I saw Tommy and the Memphis Kings play with Paul Pigat with my friend Al M. at the Beachfire last Thursday in San Clemente, and briefly got to meet Tommy, and Tavo of Nocturne. It was a great night and my friend was invited by Tommy to sit in for part of the last song of the first set, which was a thrill to see. Anyway, I’ve played guitar my whole life, self taught, and still feel like a beginner. I’m hoping by hanging around here, purchasing some of the videos and setting up some lessons in the near future will help spur some new growth in my playing.

    As far as gear, I’ve got too much and still it never seems like enough. I mostly play my Telecaster, refinished by MJT, with Lollar 52s and a Callaham. I also have a ’66 Jazzmaster and ’54 ES-125 (full body, non-cutaway). I haven’t played in a band in nearly a decade, but write and record my own music in my little bedroom studio every night after the kids are in bed. It ain’t much but it keeps me going.
