Celtic Guitar. Staring with the basics of technique and ornamentation in traditional music, Doc then goes directly into the tunes, in tablature and standard notation. Focusing on traditional music from Ireland, Doc has also chosen tunes from England, France, Flanders, North America and Corsica to reflect the guitar’s broad range. Right and left hand techniques, ornamentation, arranging and other topics are taught through the tunes themselves.
Doc Rossi, a well-known citternist and guitarist in both traditional and early music, has created this book for intermediate to advanced players who want to improve their technique, develop ideas and learn new repertorie.
