Give a listen to “Old Photographs,” the closing track on Tommy Emmanuel’s It’s Never Too Late (2015), and you’ll hear the distinctive squeak of finger noise as he runs his hands across the frets of his Maton Signature TE guitar. It’s an imperfection in the performance that players typically try to eliminate in practice, and in the hands of a less-secure musician, that sound could easily be edited from the recording with Pro Tools recording technology. But in their own way, those imperfections are perfect. For all of the masterful technique and flashy ability that’s brought Emmanuel recognition among the world’s greatest guitarists, that finger noise lets the audience know he is one of them. The same approach was taken with Tommy Emmanuel’s latest offering, the 15-track LIVE! At The Ryman (2017), a “genuine ‘had to be there,’ no fix ups, no frills recording,” says Emmanuel. “Each of my guitars has pickups and microphones included when you buy them, so the sound you hear from this recording is exactly as it sounds in the hall.”
