One of the hottest guitarists on the Irish scene today breaks apart his accompaniment style for the learning player. He demonstrates his complex strumming patterns and shows how to add interest and depth to a basic three-chord tune by using substitutions to change the underlying harmonic structure. More than a dozen great reels, jigs and hornpipes are analyzed rhythmically, including: Crowley's • The Mountain Road • Craig's Pipes • The Gooseberry Bush • Gallagher's Frolics • Mist Covered Mountain • Langstrom's Pony • Humours of Whiskey • Banks of Loch Gamhna • Return to Camden Town • Fermoy Lasses • The Girl That Broke My Heart • Chief O'Neill's Hornpipe • Tim Henry's Favorite • The Pullet.
