Bouzouki Basics #2

This course is a continuation of Billy's previous series of lessons: 'Bouzouki Accompaniment'.  Billy continues his study on how to accompany Irish music on the bouzouki.  He uses five tunes to demonstrate how to incorporate the  techniques previously covered into actual tune accompaniment. These include:  the use of appropriate chord structures, strumming patterns, fingerpicking, counter melody and rhythm.  By the end of this course of five lessons, the bouzouki student will have a firm grounding in accompanying Irish music on the bouzouki.
