Thanks to Roberto Dalla Vecchia ('Flatpicking Guitar with Italian Gusto') of Vicenza, Italy, who sends his latest newsletter:
Roberto's YouTube channel has undergone recent changes, and he thanks Vlado for putting up some great videos from the Acoustic Guitar Workshop. You can also join Roberto on Facebook.
Roberto thanks everyone whose vote has helped his music win recognition this year. Among over 42,000 albums and over 560,000 songs submitted from 160 countries for the Instrumental Album category of the 2009 Just Plain Folks Music Awards, Roberto's CD Grateful won second place. His tune 'Sunflowers', from his new CD Unknown legends, won the Channel Prize for Instrumental Solo in June 2009, receiving the highest rank in OurStage's Instrumental Solo Channel.
Both CDs can be bought or downloaded on line; the options are shown on Roberto's website, which also has a new digital store, where sheet music and tabs are available for purchase and download in PDF format at $3.95 for each title, and can also be bought in packages at a discount.
Each purchaser will receive an e-mail with a link to the download. You can preview each tab and hear a sound clip before buying. Roberto will be adding more transcriptions each month; e-mail him if there is a song that you'd like to see made available as sheet music.
