By the end of the course you will have a repertoire of thirteen popular Irish session tunes plus some valuable techniques, e.g., strumming patterns and sliding chords, to spice up your guitar accompaniment skills, not to mention general guitar mastery. The course has 13 lessons, broken into 3 to 4 tutorials each, where tunes are taught phrase by phrase.
The first half of the course will examine the chords, chord structures and strumming patterns of some of the more typical tune types and keys in the Irish tradition; the Jig, Reel, Slip Jig and Hornpipe focusing on the keys of D, G, E major and A major. It then progresses onto other techniques such as the use of sliding chords, inversions, bass runs, the hammer-on technique and more complex strumming patterns. A selection of well known tunes have been carefully selected to demonstrate the skills and techniques taught.
