DVD 3 — Developing style & Repertoire.

Get ready to dig into more of Martin’s beautiful and compelling guitar arrangements in alternate tunings. He begins this third lesson with Donal Ogg and My Generous Lover, tunes that highlight the richness of G sus 4 tuning. Betsy the Serving Maid is first sung unaccompanied, then Martin teaches the basic melody on guitar. He gradually adds bass notes, harmonies, chordal structure and percussive beats, finishing with a full performance of the tune. Other tunes, such as the Coo-Coo Bird and Miss McLeod’s Reel demonstrate his unusual and dynamic right hand picking style and illustrate how you can build a guitar instrumental using the DADGAD tuning.
