Celtic Music for Guitar by Allan Alexander contains 31 songs transcribed for guitar, most of them originating from Ireland and Scotland. The book also includes three charming original pieces written in the Celtic style by Allan. The music is presented in both music notation and guitar tablature (for people that do not read music). Play the beautiful haunting melodies of the Irish Harper O'Carolan, take a musical journey with dances that were written more than 400 years ago and experience Celtic traditional music that is the mainstay of modern players. The CD, played by Allan Alexander, gives the musician the advantage of being able to hear how these songs should be played by an expert in this genre of music and will make the learning process easier.

    I own several collections of celtic gutiar music, including the Mel Bay "Complete Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar book" but if i could only keep one, this would be it. Allexander's arrangements are excellent as is the selection. From well known carolan pieces to beautiful tunes from the Scotish and Irish...

    traditions, from dance tunes to slow airs. The pieces also range in difficulty from the relatively simple to the intricate, though unlike many other books, the simple peices in here, like the Queen's Dream, are beautiful and worth playing no matter how good you are. The three original pieces in the book are not served well by their description as charming. "Heartland Air" doesn't look out of place in company with Carolan's tunes. The cd is excellent.
