  • Hi everybody and welcome to part 2 of this series completely focused on Celtic Music.

    We will be using standard dorp D guitar tunning on the acoustic guitars since the most of Celtic and Irish music players use this tunnnig.

    What's a Reel:
    Basically, it's a folk dance. All reels have the same structure, consisting largely of quaver movement with an accent on the first and third beats of the bar. A reel is distinguished from a hornpipe by consisting primarily of even beats. Reels usually have two parts (A and B); in most reels each part is repeated (AABB), but in others it is not (ABAB). Each part (A and B) typically has eight bars, which in turn are divisible into four-bar and two-bar phrases, as in a scheme of question-answer, where the first phrase is the "question" and the second is the "answer."

    By the way, I already did a lesson based on this famous reel where you can find a lead guitar doing what fiddle and accordion do in this one here:

    Hope you like this lesson! Have fun!

    stay close! -
