    Re: Irish Bouzouki as first stringed instrument?

    I started out in ITM with the bodhran then picked up the bouzouki, so I kind of did the same thing you are doing. I did play banjo some in college but then didn't play a stringed instrument for...

    Re: San Patricio

    Don't know about more tunes but there was a movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120775/ . I thought it was a disappointment and tedious - too bad since the underlying story is so compelling.

    Re: Building a Celtic Pandora Station

    Altan, De Danann, Dervish, plus all the ones above. The Dubliners did a lot of instrumentals besides the vocals and they played them pretty straight like you might hear in a session.

    Re: Practice Quandry

    Well hdismal I can kind of sympathize with you since I had a similar experience although I've only been playing for about a year. I don't play the mandolin but decided to learn the bouzouki, bought...

    Re: Volume "concerns" during practice?

    Maybe not a popular answer for your wife, but if the baby gets used to a very quiet house that's what he'll want from here on out. If he gets used to music being played in the house he'll adapt...

    Re: Celtic chord progressions
