Rob MacKillop is regarded as one of Scotland's finest musicians. In this groundbreaking book, he defines a uniquely Scottish way of playing the guitar, incorporating rich traditions into later material – from Gaelic songs to traditional airs and dances. His arrangements reflect the origins of the tunes, with appropriate ornaments and phrasing. The accompanying CD helps players gain a deeper understanding of the subtle art of phrasing. Tunings used are DADGAD, Open D and Open G.
