Description

‘A very good book’ Arty McGlynn

‘An excellent and informative tutor, covering all aspects from basic introductory exercises with simple tunes right through to some quite difficult fingerpicking and flatpicking techniques. I would recommend this book highly, both as a tutor and as a source of music and information' guitarist Kevin Hough (RTE radio interview)

'A fine book, very well thought out and full of great tunes.’ Paul MacDonald (Cape Breton guitarist)
