The View From Here

I'm pleased to announce my latest album The View From Here! It’s all instrumental guitar, with a wide variety of music, both acoustic and electric, solo, and with some of my musical friends. You might say it takes you on a little journey. (There's also a 96 page transcription book available for you guitar players.)

Includes:  Jojobean; Living in the Hills; The View From Here; Leah; If Only I Could; Raspail in the Morning; Just a Dream; My Friend Paul; Time in a Bottle (CD bonus track); Laney's Theme; Low Down; Amazing Grace; If (CD bonus track); When You Go; Bound for Britain; A Better Day.

I've previewed a few tracks to some of my fellow artists and "music people." Here's what some of them had to say:

    • "To me, this is what great guitar playing really is. Today, and for many years now I remain a huge Craig fan!"~ Doyle Dykes

    • "This is the kind of instrumental music that bears repeated listening, that makes me reach for a guitar or harmonica to play along, and then reminds me of how good it feels to learn a new melody, find the right groove, and simply be a musician." ~ Buddy Greene

    • "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

    • "'The View' is gorgeous!" ~ Jim Hatlo, media consultant and music journalist (Frets magazine, etc.) 

    • "I love em'! Every one. I don't know how you do it, but you get the best dang sound out of my guitar! You must practice or something!" ~ Kirk Sand

If you're a guitar "listener" or just enjoy good music, order the CD. If you're a player, get the CD & book combo. And if you'd like something really special, there's the CD & limited edition hardcover book combo. The album and book are also available as downloads.

“These tunes are a part of me, and together they tell a story. I hope you’ll take the time to put this album on and let the music take you on a little journey. If you do, you just might get a glimpse of the view from here.”
