This tutorial collection contains 32 tunes for fingerstyle guitar--12 in open G and 20 in DADGAD tuning. The music was selected from the 17th century lute manuscripts, 18th and 19th century Scottish instrumental collections, the Gaelic tradition, and traditional sources. The book's three sections--Historical Perspective, Beginner's Guide, and Technical guitar, tuning the instrument, basic technique and hand coordination, musical notation, ligados, scales and modes, ornamentation and right-hand fingering. Written in standard notation and tablature with fingering indications for both hands and performance notes providing volume, with its exploration of open and altered tunings uniquely appropriate for the Scottish tradition, will provide guitarists with new creative options and repertoire.
