    One day, I woke up after a strange dream - a bunch of fairies dancing to a strange beautiful music on a little hill. I decided to try and come up with a melody which would be good enough to evoke what I have dreamed - this is how the 'Fairy's Dance' was born.

    In Celtic inspired acoustic playing, pulse and melody are the most important, so this is what I focused on, in this lesson. As a listening recommendation - check out Blackmore's Night, Faun, No'mads, to name just a few of the bands which excel in this musical style.
