Hi everybody and welcome to the 3rd part of this lesson called Celtic Guitar!
This time, I´ve composed a reel to show you how to play along with the melody.
I strongly suggest you to listen to the great guitar player John Doyle, you will find a lot of videos out there. For me one of the best in Celtic/Irish Guitar!
As I mentioned before, a reel is basically 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."
In this case, we used the key of A minor, to learn some new positions and variations in times of composing and accompaniment.
hope you like this lesson!
take it step by step and have fun!
