LATEST SITE UPDATES
There are loads of useful (and FREE) resources on the LEARNING section of this site and some music that might interest you on the DABBLINGS page. However, for site security reasons, from now on you will have to register to get access to them. Just an email, 'real' name and your location (country) will do. See the LEARNING and DABBLINGS pages for details.
Apologies to regulars. Just mail me and I'll give you the new links.
Tune of the Week (maybe)
Coming soon. Might not be every week. I don't just post a tune. I add useful stuff like practice files, the notation for tunes, parts, harmonies and chords, so sometimes it takes longer than planned.
Jigs and Reels - Rags and Rants - Jazz and Blues - Scottish and Irish - Country and World - Pickin' and Strummin .....and more!
Learn to accompany the music of these islands using GDAE and GDAD tunings. Playing our music on the bouzouki isn't like playing the guitar: it's a unique style!
Country styles including ragtime picking, slide guitar blues, basic to advanced strumming techniques and flat-picking American style. Songwriting in a variety of styles (experienced writer).
