DVD - Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar-An Introduction

taught by Tony McManus
sku: 304-DVD1019
Even at an introductory level, there's more to Celtic music than slow airs and O'Carolan harp tunes. Tony takes us on a gentle but detailed exploration of the ornamentation- rolls, grace notes, triplets, etc.- needed to really get inside this music. Much of the Celtic idiom is dance music and is defined by the contrasting rhythms of reels, jigs, slip jigs, etc. "The Lark's March" is a great example of a simple Irish jig. "Tullochgorum" is likewise a well known Scottish Strathspey (a dance unique to Scotland). Tony teaches a favorite Breton tune; a "Wedding Gavotte." We are shown a very accessible arrangement of O'Carolan's "Si Bheag Si Mhor." Also the enigmatic air "Paddy's Rambles Through The Park" - a tune from the Donegal fiddle tradition. Connect with the variety and beauty of music that has been played for centuries. "I'm Asleep," "Don't Awaken Me," "The Butterfly," more. Note/tab included as PDF file. 104 min.   More Details...
