Mike Dawes has been voted the best acoustic guitarist in the world.
Music Radar (the No.1 website for musicians) has published the results of its 2017 poll.
The MusicRadar/Total Guitar Best in guitars 2017 polls received over 136,000 votes, the nominees were the guitarists and guitar gear that have excelled in 2017.
Mike is at number one.
I told him the news:
“Woah, that’s incredibly flattering as this year has probably been the busiest yet. I set up a label, self-released and promoted a new record, new videos and toured literally ALL YEAR. It’s super nice that Musicradar acknowledges the grind. I just feel awkward as I’m the youngling on the list and most of the others are mates (or even extended family.) But yeah, sick. Thanks Musicradar!”
Mike will be coming back to university for Music Think Tank in February 2018.
