Hi Rob,
living in L.A., can sometimes be equivalent to riding on a runaway train-- with no safe place to jump! Well, the train has slowed down some, and here I am back on site listening and trying to learn more celtic music. I'm off today to try and find some useful books on the subject. My aunts and uncles used to sit around with mandolins and violins and play all the scottish reels while my heavy-set granny would lift her skirt and jig away-- so.. I learned to play the reels on the guitar... but never gave much attention to the real beautiful, lyrical celtic tunes. I am excited to put the time into learning them. Thanks for your inspirational site.
God bless ,
Nancy
