Great mandolin reference for those who like Celtic music on the mandolin. It does need a CD reference to be complete so one can get the feel of it.

As a beginner mandolin player who fell in love with most things Irish after a visit to Northern Ireland with my church worship team, I have collected a number of music books relating to Celtic tunes. This book contains 138 different tunes of the various categories such as reels, jigs, hornpipes, etc. Written in both standard notation and tablature, I am using it to get the various sounds in my head (along with listening to actual recordings) as well as note reading and fingerboard familiarization. The one downside would be that it doesn't include a CD with the tunes played by so one can hear as well as see what they should sound like. I learn a lot quicker when I hear as well as see the notes- after all, it is music, not reading.

This is a good starter book. It's in both standard and tab notation, which is always helpful. There's a cross-section of various types of celtic music, but it's not nearly complete. If you're a beginner you may find it useful, though.

What "encyclopedia"? It's just anthology of Celtic tunes, whatever you might be thinking.

It's just a fake book, really. Single-note melodies in the treble with TAB underneath that. Chords are noted by letters above the treble. Some of the melodies are quite tricky.

I guess by encyclopedia they mean "big." Well, no argument there. The thing's about 144 pages.
