Why I wrote this book

After the success of The Tradition Volume 1 (over 3000+ copies sold worldwide) I wanted to create another set of arrangements for fingerstyle guitarists to study. As with the first volume this collection features a wide array of ability levels and tunings for you to work on.

What is in the book?

From blazing Scottish reels to beautiful slow Irish airs there is something for everybody in this book – some pieces will fall under the fingers relatively quickly whilst some will require you to develop new techniques and approaches. There are ten arrangements featuring an array of tunings so you can really expand and apply your knowledge of this facet of fingerstyle guitar. There are pieces in Drop D (2 arrangements), DADGAD (6 arrangements) and Standard tuning (2 arrrangements). As with the first volume there is a detailed techniques introduction and extensive performance notes for each piece and a downloadable MP3 recording of each arrangement.

Who is this book for?

This collection is for fingerstyle players who are looking to expand their repertoire, push their technique and gain more experience of working in altered tunings. Although this is Volume 2 of the series it works perfectly as a standalone collection so there is no need to have worked through Volume 1 before you delve into this set (although many people do!).
