Re: Steve Kaufman Celtic Workout
Harribobs, if you don't already do so your next step should be attending one of the fine Irish music sessions to be found in the Manchester area. They may seem like high-octane experiences for a beginner but you will get the feel for how ITM should be played. You may even come across a mandolin player to pick up tips from.

Failing that I can guarantee you a welcome in the Huddersfield session I go to on Thursday nights - only 25 miles from Manchester!
mainly Irish but open to all dance-oriented melodic musics, Gibson A, Sobell & Oakwood mandos
