Celtic Melodies For Flatpicking Guitar DVD
The colorful tones of the guitar are well suited to the music of Ireland and Scotland. Jody Stecher has developed a unique approach to flatpicking Celtic music drawing on the sounds and techniques of the harp, fiddle and pipes. This lesson presents a graded course starting with simpler fingering with special attention to picking techniques. Building on a base of a confident and deliberate right hand, more challenging left hand work I gradually introduced.
The typical ornaments of Celtic music are shown to be manageable and effective on the guitar – including rolls, which have been thought by some to be too difficult to achieve on the instrument. Jody presents memorable tunes in the keys of G, D and A which are played in either dropped-D or standard tuning. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.
