"The View From Here"
Craig Dobbins

"The View From Here" is another outstanding "how-to-play" CD/Tab Book set from the equally outstanding guitar instructor and performer, Craig Dobbins.  What separates Craig's approach to teaching via tabs from most other instructors is the depth of where he takes you.  He not only shows which strings/frets to press down on - but, which fingers on your LEFT & RIGHT hands to use:  SHAPES & PICKING PATTERNS!  (Rather useful little bits of information.)

You don't have to believe me - here's what the incomparable late Paul Yandell had to say about Craig's teaching prowess:  "Craig Dobbins does the best job of tabbing and presenting fingerstyle guitar of anyone I know."

Album 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.

The album is gaining some notoriety in that "When You Go" was recorded by Dodi Battaglia and Tommy Emmanuel on the Italian language version of their duet album.  And, "Jojobean" recorded by Swedish finger stylist, Martin Tallstrom, on his new album. 

The CD can be purchased by itself for one to add to your CD collection for your listening pleasure.
