Celtic Guitar Styles

Course Overview

Karen will introduce participants to several styles of Celtic dance tunes and slow airs, and teach exemplary pieces from tab, notes and chord charts. Techniques to be covered include: strumming with a variety of rhythms and chord shapes, fingerpicking backup patterns, and lead (melody) playing both with a flatpick and fingerpicking. Tunings used will be standard tuning and “drop D” tuning. You should have previous guitar playing experience and you must bring your own guitars and picks.
