An exciting collection of 29 traditional tunes from Ireland, arranged for easy mandolin. All tunes are written clearly in standard notation as well as mandolin tablature. An accompanying CD contains all the tunes, played at a manageable speed, with guitar accompaniment.

The collection contains airs, well known songs, polkas, slip jigs, slides, double jigs, hornpipes and reels, all of which are specially arranged by the author with the beginning/intermediate mandolinist in mind. On the CD, the tunes are played 2 or 3 times, so you can really get into the feel of the tune, when playing along. The speed of the tunes is quite slow, but not so slow as to take away from the essential feel of the music.

Irish music is rightly popular all over the world. The haunting beauty of the slow airs and infectious foot-tapping rhythms of jigs and reels are here to be discovered in this selection of great traditional music.
