We’ve recently released Flynn Cohen’s new Irish Flatpicking Guitar course on Peghead Nation, and while Flynn was in the studio shooting the first lessons for that course, he brought guitarist and songwriter Liz Simmons, who is also his partner in Low Lilly and other musical adventures, into the studio, along with Peghead Nation’s Irish Mandolin instructor, Marla Fibish. The trio played a great set of “Fred Finn‘s” and “Sailing Into Walpole’s Marsh,” with Flynn on guitar, Marla on mandolin, and Liz on the Shruti Box.

Flynn CohenIn Irish Flatpicking Guitar, Flynn teaches you to play traditional Irish dance tunes such as reels, jigs, and hornpipes on the guitar in the style of Paul Brady, John Doyle, Arty McGlynn, and others. The course includes lessons on jig picking, triplets, and other techniques derived from traditional Irish tenor banjo playing and applied to guitar. All lessons include accurate notation and tablature for the tunes and techniques that Flynn presents, and Flynn will be adding new lessons to the course every month, so the lesson library grows as you progress.

Flynn also teaches Peghead Nation’s Irish Backup Guitar course. where he teaches you how to accompany jigs, reels, and other forms.

Marla FibishSign up for Irish Mandolin with Marla Fibish now. You’ll learn traditional Irish mandolin, with an emphasis on playing the dance music of Ireland with an authentic Irish feel and rhythm. Marla is the best there is in this style!
