We’re excited to announce that we’ve launched a great new course called Irish Flatpicking Guitar with Flynn Cohen on Peghead Nation, and you can enroll now! Take a look at Flynn’s Course Introduction video, above, and see the lineup of launch lessons by going to the main Irish Flatpicking Guitar course page. Flynn will be adding new lessons to the course each month.
In this new Course, you’ll learn 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.
