My favorites on those CDs are by Edward Gerhard (Crow), Pat Kirtley (Daisy Goes a Dancing), Benjamin Woolman (Soul Discovery), If I Only Had Wings (D.R. Auten), Bill Mize (The Road Scholar), Muir Woods (Andrew York), Alex De Grassi (Turning: Turning Back) . . . and of course everything by Michael Hedges and Billy McLaughlin.

I dislike the songs by Don Ross, Muriel Anderson, and Doyle Dukes on those albums, though it could just be those songs.

Any recommendations are appreciated!

(I should mention that for full albums, I already have all of Hedges and McLaughlin's stuff, as well as Bruce Cockburn, Al Petteway, Pierre Bensusan, Leo Kottke, John Fahey, and several others)
The original release of Mel Bay's Master Anthology of Fingerstyle Solos III actually came with a CD & the tab/notation book. Now of course it's available as an ebook and online audio.

My composition, Crossing Crystal Lake, is included in it. Somewhere I'll bet I have an unopened copy of it. I don't read or write tab so I was not able to proof read the tab for Stephen Rekas, the editor.

It must be fairly accurate because I've seen about 6-7 covers of my composition on Youtube, and most of them are close.
