Irish Rhythm Guitar: Accompanying Celtic Tunes

DVDs / Videos | Guitar

Publisher: Homespun
Artist: John Doyle
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
John Doyle's powerful accompaniment style includes strumming patterns, moving bass lines, palm damping, backbeats, accents and syncopations that drive a tune forward. By using minor chords and substitutions, he can add interest, movement and depth to a basic three-chord tune. This exciting lesson shows both simple arrangements and complex rhythms, chord shapes and progressions to enable you to get a traditional band to really rock!

Using dropped-D tuning, John teaches rhythmic accompaniments to reels, jigs, slip jigs and hornpipes. With John Williams playing the melodies on button accordion, he goes over each tune both slowly and up-to-speed, developing dynamic chord progressions and rhythmic flourishes as he goes.

You'll learn the accompaniments to more than a dozen great tunes, including 'Crowley's', 'The Mountain Road', 'Craig's Pipes', 'The Gooseberry Bush', 'Gallagher's Frollics', 'Mist Covered Mountain', 'Langstrom's Pony', Humours Of Whiskey', 'Banks Of Loch Gamhna', 'Return To Camden Town', 'The Fermoy Lasses', 'The Girl That Broke My Heart'.
