    THE PROFESSOR In this fun and cool-sounding lesson by Sinisa, you can see a fairly straight-forward Celtic chord progression, that would also sound at home in a folk, rock, or country tune as well. While you may have already mastered these chords on the guitar, and played them many times over different songs that you know, you should also be able to understand why these chords sound and work the way they do in tunes such as this one. 

    Learning how to build major triads and build minor triads can come in handy when playing chord progressions such as the one from this lesson. Getting these shapes in your ears, under your fingers and grasping the theory behind their constructions, will come together to give you a full understanding of the chords you’re strumming in your favorite songs and progressions.

    Hi folks!

    It is time for Celtic guitar!

    Listening to some of Celtic music I always wanted to compose something like that.
    But for start, what is Celtic music and where was it born?

    Most typically, the term Celtic music is applied to the music of Ireland and Scotland, because both places have produced well known distinctive styles which actually have genuine commonality and clear mutual influences. The music of Wales, Cornwall, Isle of Man, Brittany, NorthUmbria and Galicia are also frequently considered a part of Celtic music.

    The role of the guitar in traditional Celtic music is always changing. When it comes to the Irish and Scottish tradition it is one of the main choices for instrumental music and it is slowly being recognized as a melody instrument as well. Note - Celtic guitar tuning is DADGAD!

    This piece uses standard EBGDAE tuning.
