That's right, AGW World Headquarters has moved to Austin, Texas. (The place needs a little work, though.)
The tunes from The View From Here are starting to get around. Remember I told you in the April 29, 2015 news that Dov'Ë andata la musica (the Italian language version of When You Go) was recorded by Dodi Battaglia and Tommy Emmanuel as the title track of their duet album? Now, Swedish fingerstylist Martin Tallstrom has recorded Jojobean for inclusion in his forthcoming album, Gone Pickin'. Here's a YouTube video of Martin's version:
And speaking of The View From Here, the download version of the album (not including Time in a Bottle and If) is now available on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
Of course, you can order or download the full album (and the book) from my website. Check out this review from music journalist Jim Hatlo.
The View From Here keeps on getting great reviews and quotes, like this one from renowned LA studio guitarist, performer, writer, instructor, and lead guitarist for Supertramp, Carl Verheyen:
• "Craig, your new CD is really nice! You have a very sweet touch and your songs are simple and memorable, a perfect combination."
So, if you haven't ordered your copy... well, you know what to do.
P.S. I almost forgot- check out the AGW Archive! All the issues of AGW from Vol 1 No 1 through Vol 17 No 4 are available again, most as downloads.
• "I have been enjoying and admiring Craig Dobbins for many years. His playing is as smart, sensitive, and soulful as it gets. He always gives you top shelf composing and playing. I'm proud to call Craig my dear friend!" ~ Steve Wariner
