Hey /mu/, I need some help.
I agreed to play guitar with a play going on at my local tea shop, and I'm playing with musicians that are much, much better than me. The style of music they're playing is Celtic-sounding, and other than a select few songs, I have very little experience with playing Celtic music. Also, it's going to be mostly improvisational.
I need some good Celtic-esque guitar songs to pick up on the style. Any suggestions?
OP here, the only songs I know that are Celtic sounding are a Percy Grainger song, which being a march would be difficult to improvise over, and this song
Pic related, the Pogues, the Dubliners, the Wolfe Tones
these are some of the ones I used to play live while ago, they're pretty basic but they're fun to play. As for modes etc I have no idea, sorry
I've been listening to the Dubliners for years, I only ever tried to learn "Rocky Road to Dublin".
That song is literally impossible to play and sing at the same time. Hell it's nearly impossible to just sing in the first place.
m8 it's fairly easy to play and sing, it's basically just Dm and C, don't focus on tiny details, play it the way you'd play it around a bonfire, just strum Dm and C pretty fast and you're set
takes a lot of breath to sing it though desu
Thanks m8. I'm gonna need it. They're studio musicians and I want to eventually be able to do that so I'm hoping all goes well.
Also calling out for any fingerpicking songs like the one posted here?>>60185860
All you had to do was tell OP to tune his guitar to DADF#AD
