Originating in North Africa, legend has it that in the 1960's Davey Graham, British folk guitarist brought dadgad tuning back from Tangier, Morocco, and stirred Irish guitarists like Mícheál O'Domhnaill (Bothy Band, Nightnoise, Relativity), Arty McGlynn (Patrick Street, DeDannan, Four Men and A Dog, Van Morrison) and brought an old tradition into a new sound on guitar. Taught by Míchéal O'Domhnaill, who shared basics over pints with me and others when he lived in Portland.
Four one-hour sequential lessons by Kate and private links upon registration. Suggested level from intermediate to advanced. Adapt to a new simple method for a fresh, fun, effective approach to dadgad guitar.
