This work offers a rare and intimate view into the intuitive musical mind of a masterful player, along with extensive information on ornamentation, phrasing, articulation, dynamics and much more.
Though the author plays the tunes on flute and whistle, he has carefully designed the book to be useful to players of all melody instruments.
Inside you’ll find:
- Jigs, reels, hornpipes, a slide and a slip jig, both common and rare
- Valuable insights into the art of variation
- Three chapters explaining ornamentation, phrasing and modes
- A CD containing the tunes, played by the author
