Watch the SECTION 1: Essential Concepts online guitar lesson by Tony McManus from The Celtic Journeyman

In this first section we’re going to introduce some essential ideas and break them down into small manageable chunks. We’ll look at rhythmic ideas- different tune types; jigs, reels, marches, strathspeys etc. We look at different tunings- a major aspect of my approach to this music. I don’t often play in standard tuning.

In this course we’ll use Dropped D and DADGAD tunings- maybe others in future courses.

We’ll look at left and right hand ornamentation; grace notes, triples with ring, middle and index fingers, triplets with the thumb on wound strings- a very unusual idea which I hope you jump on!

We study each concept in turn and give you enough to get going before moving onto the next idea. Let’s look at these essential concepts.
