Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Many critics and performers consider Tony McManus to be one of the world's most talented Celtic guitarists. His unique sound resulted from learning to play many of the more challenging Celtic tunes on the fiddle, tin whistle, and mandolin. Here, students are given lessons on mastering the special fingering, hand positions, and other skills critical to this style of music. The video includes shots of McManus' hands throughout the lesson, giving students a close-up look at his technique.
