Celtic Backup for All Instrumentalists (Book/CD Set)
Celtic Backup for All Instrumentalists (Book/CD Set) by Chris Smith. This book teaches the most crucial function of a chord instrument in the Celtic seisún - that of playing tasteful, interesting, imaginative, and supportive improvised accompaniment. Celtic Back-Up presents accurate and directly applicable information on the theory, conception, stylistic considerations, procedures, and resources for accompaniment. Every facet of seisún accompaniment is thoroughly explored. With this book you will come to understand why many authors are reluctant to suggest chord accompaniment with notated melodies: the goal is to be open to fresh ideas and improvise the accompaniment as you go.
