This rich collection of 68 jigs and reels features some of the most cherished tunes played by session players from 21st-century Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Celtic Diaspora. Tom Hanway demonstrates contemporary "Celtic fingerstyle banjo" through modern techniques and traditional Irish and Celtic melodies using standard G tuning.

Through these lessons, you can learn the essentials needed to play stock Irish and Celtic tunes, which can later be combined in medleys to play at sessions.
