Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar

Tony McManus and Gordon Duncan.



Currently I am playing Tony McManus and two sessions on Celtic finger style guitar developed for Stefan Grossman. It is played with different tunings such as DADGAD; dropped D; DADGBE; CGCGCD etc. I am using thick strings (13…) in order to have more sustain in the guitars. Check out the following example; the “sleeping tune” by Gordon Duncan – the composition is supposedly made almost in a dreaming condition (the playing starts after approximately 5 minutes)
