This DVD is for guitarists who want to get familiar with the world of Celtic music on fingerstyle guitar. National Fingerstyle Guitar Champion, Pat Kirtley, presents challenging arrangements in the DADGAD tuning of six traditional tunes from Ireland and Scotland. These arrangements are designed for guitarists who are already at advanced-beginner to intermediate level and want to explore a completely different musical style. The skill level progresses throughout the lesson from the very easy but melodic Skye Boat Song to a challenging dance tune Boys from Blue Hill.
