Irish music instructional and/or songbook

Post by madden » Thu Dec 12, 2019 2:26 am

Okay everyone
I have pretty much finished working through Brendan’s instructional “play Irish music on the blues harp”. I’d like to hear if anyone has any recommendations for either another instructional or song book for Irish music. I’m self teaching with help of Brendan’s book and some you tube. I own diatonic harmonicas D and G paddy richter. I am starting to be able to play by ear somewhat but the tablature does help a lot of times with the intricate phrases. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Thank you
Ron

Hey Ron - I started with Brendan's books and progressed to the web site - https://thesession.org - hundreds of Trad Irish tunes with notation and Midi file, a small donation keeps the site active and supported.

Also check out Joel Anderson's web site and latest solo Harmonica recording - wonderful full octave and chord player, and certified Hohner Affiliated Customiser.

Enjoy the music....
Regards
Paul
