Chris Smith - Celtic Backup

Some years ago Chris Smith released his book "Celtic Back-Up For All Instrumentalists". I havn't read it until now, but on his website there are some great articles on various aspects of folk music.

You can buy the book here:

Here are some links to interesting articles on his website:

Instruction: Triplets for plucked strings

Instruction: Building chords

Instruction: Modes and modal substitutions

Instruction: Learning to accompany

Instruction: Picking jigs

Instruction: Time and technique

There are lots more tutorials on his site. Please check out for yourself.
