Book/CD pack. The cittern is a 5-course instrument played with a flatpick, capable of handling melody, harmony and backup. Doc tunes his cittern GDADG like the Irish bouzouki but with an extra course on top. The focus here is on melody playing using mostly traditional tunes from Ireland. Doc starts with a quick overview of technique then goes straight into the music, discussing right and left techniques, ornamentation, arranging, and other topics along the way. Assumes some knowlege of basic stringed-instrument technique, so this book is best for intermediate to advanced players. Guitarists can play the tunes by tuning CFCGCF and putting a capo at the second fret. The CD features all the tunes played at a medium tempo. Tunes are presented in separate tablature and notation sections. 74 pp.
