beautifull guitar :)
Solid intro. Good pacing, plenty of time to practice.
Great overview of what makes Celtic guitar different from other styles.
Great stuff. Clearly explained, well demonstrated, and fun.
Hi Steve! Thanks. Working on this on both six and 122 string.
I am now playing three Celtic songs that I have listened to for years but never thought I would be playing. Having a ball.
I liked the way he added the alternate chord lesson shape to help think beyond the open position...
One of my favorite Celtic tunes. Would love a backing track to practice on. Steve has done a great job on this series!
since I can't sing I enjoy playing songs with melody like this.
Steve is such an excellent and inspirational teacher. He's my favorite. His explanations are clear, and I feel as I am in the room with him because of his comfort in front of the camera. He's a big reason I came back to Jamplay.
Very clear !
