A new video from Julie! My heart skips a beat whenever I listen to her songs or watch her videos. She's simply the best female celtic singer.

Karl Nesbitt - A Bouzouki tutorial

Here's a little bouzouki tutorial from Karl Nesbitt. He demonstrates the accompaniment for the A-part oth the Salamanca reel. He is accompanied by Tommie Conniffe on the Accordion.

Nice finger picking on the bouzouki here from Karl Nesbitt. Two tunes: Ag Fagainnt Slan & The Battle of Aughrim.

Off-topic, but really good, here's a bodhran tutorial from Karl. Seems he likes Apple computers, just like me.
