Are you eager to elevate your bouzouki skills and dive deeper into the world of Irish music? Our course, “Irish Bouzouki Skills” is an ideal next step for those who have completed Alan’s Bouzouki Progressions course and are familiar with the basics.
Irish Bouzouki Skills is ideal for players with a solid grasp of the bouzouki and has been designed to follow on from Alan’s Bouzouki progressions course.
In this course, Alan teaches a variety of techniques to bring out the best in your bouzouki playing. Left and right-hand muting, countermelody and hammer-ons as well as how to incorporate rhythmic and melodic motifs into your playing.
A key part of this is course learning how to accompany less common tune types like slides, polkas, and mazurkas. As usual, we have play along melody backing tracks available for each tune in the course.
