Or perhaps I should say Irish music... Is there a know relationship between flatpicking and irish / celtic music? Recently I got the 2007 Flatpicking CD by FGM and there are several irish sounding tunes on there, even one with an irish whistle. I always associated flatpicking with just bluegrass music, but now I am thinking that I am just calling the kettle black. I understand that alot of irish, whistle music are fiddle tunes, just the same that alot of bluegrass songs are fiddle tunes as well. So, is there a connection here between the two? I would like to here your opinions on this. Thanks.
