Ed will explore the possibilities offered by this guitar tuning widely-used in accompanying Irish tunes by looking at different chord shapes, progressions and substitutions, rhythmic approaches for jigs and reels, and right-hand techniques both with and without the pick. Ed will be more than happy to answer any questions from participants during the session.
