British traditional folk music is rooted in a vocal tradition of hundreds of years as well as a strong dance culture. It is not bound by any time or bar structure. The guitarist must find ways to explore, reinforce, accent and embellish these melodies.

Martin Carthy has successfully done this with the C G C D G A tuning. He plays with a heavy percussive attack and has a unique sense of phrasing and a strong emotional and atmospheric feel for his music. In this DVD lesson, Martin explains in detail his playing techniques and style for seven of his most popular arrangements.
