‘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)
