Doug Young: Paddy Fahy’s Jig #1/Paddy Fahy’s Reel #3
 
Peghead Nation instructor plays a fingerstyle guitar arrangement of two popular Irish tunes.
March 14, 2023
 

San Francisco Bay Area guitarist Doug Young is an expert in arranging both contemporary and traditional music for fingerstyle guitar, and he showcases his skills on several albums. Doug teaches Peghead Nation’s Alternate Tunings Fingerstyle Guitar course, where he explores a wide variety of tunings and fingerstyle techniques, and uses his arrangements as vehicles for demonstrating the concepts. 

“Paddy Fahy’s Jig #1” and “Paddy Fahy’s Reel #3” are tunes that are popular at Irish sessions, and Doug used recordings by fiddler Martin Hayes to base his arrangements on. Using them to explore DGDGAD tuning, he teaches both in his course, which includes music and TAB for each tune. 

In this performance, Doug plays the minor-key “Paddy Fahy’s Jig #1” followed by the major-key “Paddy Fahy’s Reel #3,” both in a fluid style that is a hallmark of playing in alternate tunings.
