Petteway: Celtic Instrumentals for Fingerstyle Guitar DVD 1
Learn to play in the tuning that gives many Celtic and British Isles guitar instruments their special power and beauty. Al Petteway shows you how to play exquisite arrangements in DADGAD using droning bass notes, slides, bends, hammers, pulls and other guitar tricks that imitate the haunting sounds of harps and pipes. This wonderful DVD provides invaluable insights into the beauty of Celtic music. A natural and engaging instructor, Al teaches a variety of guitar techniques, including strongly syncopated rhythm strokes, delicate 'cross-string' playing, and the modal scales that allow you to improvise within the style. He also provides important exercises for gaining maximum control, speed and fluidity in your playing.
