By the end of the course you will have a repertoire of thirteen of the most popular Irish songs that are commonly played in Irish music sessions all over the world. The course has 13 lessons, broken into 3 to 4 tutorials each, where tunes are taught phrase by phrase.
The tutor discusses various aspects of accompaniment on the guitar: strumming patterns, finger plucking techniques, the use of smooth chord transitions, hammer-ons, walk ups and descending chord patterns. Most of the emphasis is on the guitar accompaniment rather than vocal technique. All these techniques are demonstrated by learning a new tune with each lesson, phrase by phrase.
