This DVD by my friend and colleague Guido Plüschke is designed for the interested person with no previous knowledge and the previously self-taught player. The basic techniques are shown and explained step by step. Knowledge of sheet music is not necessary, as all strumming patterns are taught in tablature form.

The student then dives into the world of Irish folk and learns the two most important rhythms of Irish music, the reel and the jig. The ornamentation, which is important for Irish music, is also explained in the form of triplets. Furthermore, the first steps and techniques with the back hand are shown. This is used for sound modulation. The student is also introduced to the structure of Irish instrumental music.

The individual techniques of all chapters are learned in the form of small repeatable exercises and played to the music of two studio musicians. At the end, all left and right hand techniques are applied in arrangements for the reel and jig.

Bonus material:

  • 90-minute featurette by Willie Burger about Guido and his life as a bodhrán player.
  • A short overview of the history of the bodhrán, narrated by Guido
  • Bodhrán solo by Guido
  • complete tune sets played by Irish musicians, with bodhrán accompaniment by Guido

In countless workshops, the Hamburg native imparts his knowledge to interested people of all playing levels.
