1: Celtic Acoustic: Cil Chais
Cil Chais is an ancient melody that comes to us from the hills of Ireland, with all their mist and magic. This relatively uncomplicated acoustic fingerstyle version incorporates melody, bass, and harmony in such a way as to evoke a larger gathering of Irish musicians and instruments. We'll break the piece down and learn it note for note, then play it together all the way through, with a band joining us at the end. Have fun!
2: Celtic Acoustic Jig: Little Red Lark
In this tutorial, we'll take an overview of the whole tune. We'll talk about working in 6/8 time, and how to count ourselves in to this tune. I'll give you some tips and tricks to make learning and playing the tune easier. and then we'll finish up with 2 playalongs; one at a slowed-down pace, and the other up to speed with a backup band. Have fun!

Some of these concepts are for intermediate players, but even through mere imitation of the more complex musical examples, a less-experienced guitarist should learn some very valuable ideas about how to play Ska.
