The Irish Bouzouki Tutorial

It took a long time, but now it's available, the English translation of the Irish Bouzouki Tutorial, which was until now only available in German. Ralf P. Wackers did a great Job on that book. If you are new to the bouzouki or want to learn some more tricks have a look at it. It's made for all common tunings, GDAE, GDAD and ADAD.

As with the German version you can order it directly from Ralf on his website at:

There you can also view some preview pages.
