Traditional Music of the British Isles for Electric Guitar - Celtic Rock Solos

by Philip John Berthoud
sku: 02-30522M
Book with online audio. Ideal for the intermediate-level guitarist, these 17 traditional tunes from the UK plus one from France are arranged to be played with your electric guitar. The transformation in switching from acoustic to electric instruments adds an unmistakable Celtic rock element.

The tunes are played twice through on the recording and transcribed note-for-note in the book. The recording features backup from electric bass and a second electric guitar, often played with a slide and a little "dirt." Skillful bodhrán and djembe playing on many of the tracks adds to the dynamic nature of the recording.

Many of these tunes can be played in lower positions but a few venture as high as the 14th fret. Working through these tunes will help you improve as a sight reader. Note/tab. 52 pp.   More Details...
