Steve Baughman's Celtic Guitar Method MB96700BCD $22.95

Traditionally the role of the guitar in Celtic music has been confined to accompaniment of lead instruments or a vocalist.

Divided into two sections, the book covers melodic and percussive expressive techniques. The transcriptions herein are derived from Steve's album, A Drop of the Pure. All are written in standard notation and tablature.
