"Celtic Music for Guitar" by Allan Alexander contains 31 songs transcribed for guitar, most of them originating from Ireland and Scotland. The book also includes three charming original pieces written in the Celtic style by Allan. The music is presented in both music notation and guitar tablature (for people that do not read music). Play the beautiful haunting melodies of the Irish Harper O'Carolan, take a musical journey with dances that were written more than 400 years ago and experience Celtic traditional music that is the mainstay of modern players.

If you are learning and looking for great music, this is one book that you will not be able to put down. If you are a performer looking for high quality material, these great pieces, expertly arranged, will become part of your permanent repertoire.

The CD, played by Allan Alexander, gives the musician the advantage of being able to hear how these songs should be played by an expert in this genre of music and will make the learning process easier. Many of these pieces were written for the lute, however Allan has found that they work very well on guitar. Being an accomplished player of both lute and guitar, he has the knowledge to make accurate, musical transcriptions. Other pieces are traditional tunes that have been arranged specifically for guitar. Many of the selections have variations on the original melodies. This adds another dimension to pieces and enhances a performance. Allan is a professional performer and these selections are part of Allan's permanent repertoire.
