In this week’s free Irish guitar lesson from Folk Friend, I’ll be showing you a simple rhythmic variation for jigs which will really enhance your Celtic backing guitar! I’ll also be showing you how to apply it using linking chords to create a smooth chord progression between a major chord and its related minor chord. The demonstrations in this acoustic guitar tutorial use DADGAD tuning (including diagrams for DADGAD chords), but I’ll also show you how you could use the same techniques in standard (EADGBE) tuning.
I recently finished writing a complete Beginner’s Guide To Celtic DADGAD Accompaniment! You can find it here.
