Watch the The Irish Girl online guitar lesson by Adrian Legg from Fingerstyle Revisionist: Adagio Songbook

"The Irish Girl" is a piece I wrote quite a long time ago, in which I wanted a piece that sounded Irish. I chose open D for it's beautiful, warm quality, and knew that I needed to cover at least an octave to make it sound the way I wanted. With a little fiddling around with an octave arpeggio, the tune came together after applying simple compositional rules to develop the piece.
