Few professors teach this style (…), after the very interesting “Country guitar instructionnal video” for the same publisher, michel lelong realised again the same challenge with the “Celtic guitar instructionnal” (…) the arrangements are especially for owners of folk guitar. Both techniques are the “Finger-picking”And “Flat-picking”.
