Irish Slow Session Vol 1 The Irish Slow Session Vol.1

THE SLOW SESSION SERIES of books has been designed to provide suggestions for tunes which might be played at Scottish sessions. They came about out of a series of slow sessions I ran in various locations, but the tunes are suitable at any tempo, slower or faster. They are presented in sets of two or three tunes (except for airs etc) with guitar chords, introductions and some background information on the tunes, and suggestions on how to start your own session.

The IRISH SLOW SESSION Vol.1 features tune which I have heard in various sessions around Scotland and Ireland. Any list of session tunes will have people agreeing with some, and disagreeing with others. At the end of the day, in my opinion, they're all good tunes and worth having. The book is also available as a digital download (for tablets, etc) and a digital mandolin tab version.
