Summary

Summary

In these three audio lessons, Duck Baker, Stefan Grossman, and John Renbourn teach six Celtic fingerstyle guitar solos. The three compact discs offer three full hours of note-by-note, phrase-by-phrase instruction, and all of the arrangements appear in the book in notation and tablature. Lesson One, by Duck Baker, teaches Planxty Irwin in Drop D tuning and Hewlett in standard tuning. Lesson Two, by Stefan Grossman, introduces Open G minor tuning for Logan Water and Captain Magan. Lesson Three, by John Renbourn, continues G minor tuning with arrangements of Mist Covered Mountains and The Orphan. This lesson concludes with five bonus tracks featuring performances by Davey Graham and Dave Evans.
