Here's my rendition of Tommy Emmanuel's "Saltwater" instrumental. It's a combination of his original release, a more current version as taught by Tim van Roy, and a few of my own ideas. I'm not overjoyed with this recording, but it is what it is. I lost track of all the starts and stops trying to get this done. In fact, this is the only recording I made it to the end. Time to move on to something a little easier. Thanks for listening.

P.S. I mentioned Tim van Roy. If you're looking for song tutorials, he's really good, but most of the songs he teaches are pretty tough. You can find him on YouTube, and he has a Patreon page where you can subscribe, download sheet music and sometimes mp3s.

Guess we hear our own mistakes more.

Can't say I've ever had a "clean" recording.

Awesome Mike. What a terrific talent! I love watching really fluid players as yourself, finger movements concise, with cleanly played notes. Thx for sharing.

That is not an easy song to learn, Mike. You play it beautifully.

I learned Windy and Warm from a Tim van Roy tutorial some time back and I agree, he has many great lessons on Tommy Emmanuel songs.

 

Thanks for posting,

Wim.

Thanks, Wim! I started "True" yesterday, a Martin Taylor song taught by Tim van Roy. He said early in the first lesson video that it's quite a bit easier than most of the songs he teaches, but I'm finding it even harder than Saltwater, lol. We'll see how it goes.

Very nice job!   I agree with others about how fluid it sounds and it’s pleasing tonality.
