    You will find various information for each song listed. It may be in depth comments on the recording of the song (but there at not too many of these). You may find reference to CDs including the recording, books and videos where it is included, information on guitar tuning, key, chord progressions, etc. But for some, you will find nothing but the title. It all depends on how much information I have on this specific recording. (You can help me improve this by sending information.)

    "Compositions" are only listed when they are recorded by other artists than the composer or when there is no reference to a specific recording (and "recording artist" is given as "Standard".)

    A Kentucky-born guitarist who learned the instrument at an early age via the Atkins/Travis/Doc Watson heritage, Pat Kirtley admits to having been hard-bitten by the Irish music bug in the late 1980's after hearing guitarist John McCormick playing Celtic tunes in DADGAD tuning. He began exploring that tuning, and channeling significant creative energy into arranging Irish fiddle tunes and airs. "I am as fascinated by the fabulous wealth of musicality represented in the Irish folk-tradition as I am by the fact that I went through most of my musical life being totally ignorant of its existence," Pat remarks. The results of that work are represented in his body of work by arrangements of "Planxty Irwin" (in DADEAD tuning), the set dance "Rodney's Glory," and airs "Moran's Return" and "The South Wind," all appearing on his 1997 album Irish Guitar.
