We’re excited to announce that our latest guitar course, Irish Backup Guitar with Flynn Cohen, is now live! In this new course, you’ll learn how to accompany jigs and reels and other traditional Irish dance tunes in the style pioneered by Irish guitar greats Paul Brady, Mícheál Ó Dhomhnaill, and Dáithí Sproule and used at Irish seisiúns. Flynn teaches the essential chord voicings and rhythm patterns in the style, and shows examples of playing backup to popular Irish tunes. We also include practice tracks so you can work on your accompaniment with a melody player.
