Noted Scottish musician Tony McManus once again shares his expert techniques during this second video lesson for students interested in mastering Celtic instrumentals. McManus concentrates on the dance rhythms of Scottish pipemarches, strathspeys, single and double jigs, slip jigs, and reels. He also demonstrates three unusual tunings: CGCGCD, CGDGCD, and DAAEAE. McManus believes that these tunings help students properly maintain the integrity of the music.
