There are many ways to approach arranging Celtic melodies. For these three lessons we present three teachers each with their own approach, techniques and sound.
Lesson One: Duck Baker teaches two O'Carolan arrangements. Planxty Irwin is played in a dropped D tuning while Hewlett is played in the key of G.
Lesson Two: I present an air and a dance tune both played in the Open G Minor tuning (D G D G Bb D): Logan Water and Captain Magan.
Lesson Three: John Renbourn teaches two traditional Irish tunes: Mist Covered Mountains Of Home and The Orphan. Both are played in an open Gm tuning featuring counterpoint, ornamentation and playing a melody against a ripple accompaniment.
