Ideal for the intermediate-level guitarist, these 17 traditional tunes from the UK plus one from France are arranged to be played with your electric guitar plugged-in. The transformation that occurs in switching from acoustic to electric instruments adds an unmistakable Celtic rock element to the author’s companion recording.

The tunes are all played twice through on the recording and transcribed note-for-note in the book. The recording features backup from both electric bass and a second electric guitar, often played with a slide and a little “dirt” thrown into the mix. Skillful bodhrán and djembe playing on many of the tracks adds to the dynamic nature of the recording.

Many of these tunes can be played in lower positions but a few venture as high as the 14th fret. Playing one note at a time within a narrow range, if you don’t read particularly well now, working through these tunes will help you improve and gain confidence as a sight reader.

Written in standard notation and guitar tablature. Includes access to online audio.
