Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar According to Tony McManus. Tony McManus is an adept master of Celtic fingerstyle guitar, both in terms of adapting Celtic music to the guitar and in its performance - presenting all it intricacies, graces, and frills yet at the same time maintaining the pace and drive which characterises this style of music.
Volume 1. In this first lesson, Tony discusses in detail the importance of ornamentations and triplets in Celtic music, and importantly, how this can be technically achieved. Scales and fingerings and playing in the DADGAD tuning are discussed and then illustrated with several melodies played in this dropped D tuning.

The idea and playing of sets is presented, as well as further exploration of ornamentation techniques.
