  • 2017-08-11 09:40:12.0 lovely listening, but ....

    I had trouble splitting the tracks for performance, so sometimes playing along sounded discordant. I wish that all the play-alongs separated demo and performance trax (like Alfred's play alongs - I have enjoyed them). Not everyone can cut off one speaker. And the violin part comes out of the...

    opposite speaker than other "play along" trax from other makers. The "album" itself, however, I play frequently because it is a lovely listen. For purists, quite a few of these songs were written by the compiler and not "old." They are in Celtic style but weren't played 100 yrs ago. I do think it was a worth the money to increase my range of skill and style.

    I'm in love with this book, very enjoyable for beginners like me, just enough challenging to avoid boring playing and easy enough to enjoy each piece quickly!

    Coming from a classical background, I'm not very familiar with Celtic music. I love beautiful melodies, though, and this book hits the spot. These songs are not challenging, but so enjoyable. A lot are in minor keys and not played particularly fast. The guitar accompaniment is a refreshing change...

    but wish they had recorded all repeats and put it on a separate CD. Well worth buying.

    I liked playing the whole book and enjoyed the accompanient of the classical guitar because it made the music complete. Usually CD's come with canned music with too much drum etc. The music had some easy pieces and some you needed to watch your counting and beat.

  • 2012-02-23 00:00:00.0 Great book, empty CD

    I bought two copies of this book, one for my wife and one for her friend. One had a CD that worked just great, once I disconnected the right speaker to silence the guitar (my wife wanted to hear the violin only). The other CD was blank. My computer indicated...

    it was "unformatted". Thankfully, I did get two copies, so I had at least one good CD. My wife does enjoy playing the songs with the violin tracks.
