Flatpicking Guitar Network

For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine

Seamie O'Dowd probably isn't well known outside Ireland but he's worth checking out - see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPWpGWuYDtM&feature=relmfu

 

Also you might want to check out www.irishfiddle.ie - obviously aimed at fiddlers but the notation in the second book includes ornamentation suggestions - if you're a good reader it would make a reasonable purchase.

Also is anyone insterested in a tune of the month?  I play in a regular session and we've decided to try to focus on particular tunes - currently jigs The Woodcock and The Kerfunken - what I'm really hoping is that Kathy Barwick (who now has time on her hands) will jump in and work up a crosspicking alternative to the straight ahead version.

hmmm. Kerfunken, I know that. My B part is less crosspicking and more floaties. Might be interesting....

Cathal,

    Guess you're not at kamp either! Hoping to make it next year...and drag Mark Thatcher along too. I'd be interested in the tune of the month. I'd like to start playing some of the sessions around here (yes, there are some) with my mandolin. 

Dan, great to have you back. Too much stuff happening here this summer so put off Kamp but definitely want to go next year - hopefully Keith White and Tim McCaughey too.

I'll dig out some links to those tunes and let's see what Kathy can do!

 

 

Cool stuff, Cathal. I was also trying to find some video of Fergal Scahill playing some guitar... I picked up a great guitar album of his in Clifden last year. But I just find (some pretty amazine) fiddle youtubes of him. Anyway, thanks for sharing the Seamie O'Dowd stuff!

ps, so far not so much extra time. Still lookin' for it, though!
