Accompanying Irish Music on Guitar










Welcome to Frank Kilkelly's guide to the accompaniment of Irish dance music on guitar. "Accompanying Irish Music on Guitar" is the new, comprehensive guide for guitar players everywhere.  A range of four different tunings is covered, along with suggestions on right hand styles suited to each tuning. 

There are sections on the basis of effective accompaniment, practice advice, profiles of leading players and, in addition, Frank takes a close look at the accompaniment used on the companion CD recording, which is recorded especially for this book and features guitar accompaniment to some excellent melody players. 

The book & CD can be ordered from our online shop.


It is designed for those who have a basic grasp of some chords and some strumming ability on the guitar.   It is not assumed that you know much about the structure of Irish music and so this book will also be of use if you are a competent guitarist in other styles.

"In three months, I've made a lot of progress. (I play guitar but I'm used to blues/rock and pop songs.) Unlike others, this production is very complete, full of good advice and very very understandable tips. The CD is well recorded, you hear exactly what he plays and the notation is 99% suited to the CD, which is rarely the case with other methods. I am a teacher in science and mathematics, very demanding about clearness and with this book I found exactly what I was looking for." Gervais Pradervand, Switzerland
