Summary

Summary

It is a challenge to arrange and play American fiddle tunes and Celtic melodies on the guitar. This set of lessons presents several approaches for the intermediate guitarist with 3 CDs containing 3 full hours of instruction. Written in notation and tablature. LESSON ONE: Dave Laibman's arrangement of Colored Aristocracy features a Chet Atkins approach. Midnight on the Water, a beautiful Texas waltz, was arranged by Duck Baker and features counterpoint lines and variations on the theme. The West Wind is an evocative Irish air played with a classical feel. LESSON TWO: American fiddle tunes: Boys, My Money's All Gone played in a Nashville style and Last of Callahan, an arrangement using a counterpoint bass line played against the melody. LESSON THREE: Fiddle tunes from Ireland and America: Rights of Man and Drunken Wagoner both played in a dropped D tuning (D A D G B E).
