It is a challenge to arrange and play American fiddle tunes and Celtic melodies on the guitar. This set of lessons presents several approaches for the intermediate guitarist with 3 CDs containing 3 full hours of instruction. Written in notation and tablature.

LESSON ONE: Dave Laibman's arrangement of "Colored Aristocracy" features a Chet Atkins approach. "Midnight on the Water," a beautiful Texas waltz, was arranged by Duck Baker and features counterpoint lines and variations on the theme. "The West Wind" is an evocative Irish air played with a classical feel.

LESSON TWO: American fiddle tunes: "Boys, My Money's All Gone" played in a Nashville style and "Last of Callahan," an arrangement using a counterpoint bass line played against the melody.

LESSON THREE: Fiddle tunes from Ireland and America: "Rights of Man" and "Drunken Wagoner" both played in a dropped D tuning (D A D G B E)
