Pat Kirtley Irish Guitar

Guitar (Fingerpicking) - Intermediate-Advanced
Celtic Guitar Solos. Edited by John Roberts and Mark Pritcher. Perfect binding, Solos. Celtic/Irish. Book. 72 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.97332).

Item Number: MB.97332
ISBN 9780786670512. Celtic/Irish. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

World traveling fingerstyle guitarist Pat Kirtley presents 17 solo guitar arrangements of traditional Irish tunes including a few original compositions in the same vein by himself, Pierre Bensusan, and Duck Baker. As all of the tunes in this 1997 recording were arranged in altered tunings (DADGAD, EADEAE or DADEAD), each appears in both standard notation and tablature with insightful performance notes. In general, these transcriptions from Pat Kirtley's 1997 album of the same title are extremely accurate; The Red-Haired Boy, however, played as a duet with Steve Rector on the album - appears as a solo arrangement in this book. Recommended for the intermediate to advanced player, the author provides insightful performance notes for each tune.

    A great tab/cd for those who enjoy the resonance of dadgad tuning. Duck Baker has his own versions of six of the tunes on Kirtley's cd, but he does it in a more workman-like way in standard tuning compared to Kirtley's more intuitive approach. They'll...

    both take you to same wee cottage by different routes, and both are well worth exploring.
