Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I back Irish traditional music on guitar and bouzouki and play a bit of whistle and flute as well. I teach around the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area and perform regularly with áthas and other traditional musicians.

I pretty much play guitar in DADGAD, although have been switching back to standard on occasion.

Check out my website where I blog frequently about using guitar and bouzouki in Irish traditional music: http://jeffksiazek.com/

I'm working on adding more resources for backers of Irish music!
