Editorial Reviews

To find a unique voice on so ubiquitous an instrument as the acoustic guitar is quite an achievement: to do so within a centuries old idiom where the instrument has no real history is truly remarkable. Tony McManus has come to be recognized throughout the world as the leading guitarist in Celtic Music. From early childhood his twin obsessions of traditional music and acoustic guitar have worked together to produce a startlingly original approach to this ancient art. In Tony's hands the complex ornamentation normally associated with fiddles and pipes are accurately transferred to guitar in a way that preserves the integrity and emotional impact of the music. Self taught from childhood, initially through listening to the family record collection, Tony abandoned academia in his twenties to pursue music full time. The session scene in Glasgow and Edinburgh provided the springboard for gigs around Scotland and a studio set for BBC Radio began to spread the word. Tony's first self titled recording in 1996, followed by Pourquoi Quebec in 1999 led to worldwide recognition. However, it was with the release of Ceol More in 2002 that Tony's stature as a first class musician reached a new level. In a relatively short time Tony's music has come to define a new role for the guitar in Celtic music. He has come to represent Celtic music in the guitar world. He has appeared at Guitar Festivals in Soave and Pescantina, Italy; Frankston, Australia; Issoudun, France; Kirkmichael, Scotland; Bath and Kent, England; Bochum and Osnabruck, Germany. His ability to reach audiences unfamiliar with traditional music is remarkable- he is quite comfortable at predominantly classical events such as the Dundee and Derry Guitar Festivals (appearing six times between the two) and even The Bogota International Guitar Festival where he followed virtuoso Eduardo Fernandez. Today his live work ranges from intimate solo performance through various duos with friends Alain Genty, Bruce Molsky, and Alasdair Fraser to the quartet Men of Steel (with fellow guitarists Dan Crary, Beppe Gambetta and Don Ross). He is an enthusiastic collaborator both as a leader and as a sideman having worked with, among many others Dougie McLean, Phil Cunningham, Mairi MacInnes, Liam O'Flynn, Martin Simpson, Kevin Burke, Alison Brown, Martyn Bennett, Natalie MacMaster, Patrick and Jacky Molard, Mairead n Mhoanaigh and Dermot Byrne, The Nashville Chamber Orchestra, John Jorgenson, Jean Michel Veillon, Catriona Macdonald, Seikou Keita, Xos Manuel Budino, Ewen Vernal and Andy Irvine. In this DVD Tony talks about his influences and approach to guitar playing as well as performing a wide array of tunes from jigs to reels to pop and jazz classics. Tunes Include: Medley: Hector The Hero, The Girls at Martinfield Guitar Tuning: DADGAD capo 2 Maids of Mitchelstown Guitar Tuning: DADGAD >> Medley: An Ciarraioch Mallaithe (The Accursed Kerryman), Muireann's Jig Guitar Tuning: DADGBE >> Medley: Seathan, Chloe's Passion Guitar Tuning: CGCGCD capo 2 >> Breton Wedding Marches Guitar Tuning: DADGAD capo 5 >> Goodbye Porkpie Hat Guitar Tuning: DADGAD capo 1 >> Medley: Sleeping Tune, Na Gossidich Guitar Tuning: CGCGCD capo 2 Medley: Wonderful World, Charlie Hunter's Jig, Humours of Tulla Guitar Tuning: DADGAD capo 3 Medley: Exile, Le Reve du Queteux Tremblay, Sandizan Guitar Tuning: DADGAD capo 2 >> Bidh Clan Uillaidh Guitar Tuning: CGDGCD capo 2 >> Shalom Aleichem Guitar Tuning: EADGBE >> The Lament for the Viscount of Dundee Guitar Tuning: DAAEAE capo 1 >> Medley: A Tune For Frankie, O'Farrell's Welcome to Limerick Guitar Tuning: AEADF#B capo 2 >> Nikosi Sikelele Africa Guitar Tuning: AEADEA Doina Guitar Tuning: DADGBE >> Sliabh Na Mban Guitar Tuning: DADGBE 86 Minutes

This is a simple in-the-studio recording where Tony discusses and introduces each song prior to playing it solo. The song intros are more about the history behind the song and the story it tells than what chords he uses and why. This is not an instructional video in any sense. High quality multi-camera video and audio and of course exceptional playing. If you want a high quality video recording of this master guitarist and enjoy acoustic Celtic music, you'll be very happy with this DVD.

Verified Purchase
I bought this believing it was a dvd lesson video that would come with a tab booklet like they usually do. Low and behold I find out this didn't after receiving it. I investigated into why not and found out this isn't considered a lesson dvd. This is a video of him basically playing and talking about his technique and whatnot. Apparently dvd's put out under the Vestapol label of Stefan Grossmans label are not instructional videos. Nowhere did it states this when I bought this. So I say don't waste your money like I did. You can find enough stuff of him on youtube and basically learn the same thing in this video. I gave it one star because that was the lowest they have.

I usually do not post reviews on amazon's .com page. Since the only review that can be found for the Celtic-Fingerstyle-Guitar-DVD is rather unfair, I am happy to add a different view.

With "Celtic-Fingerstyle-Guitar" Tony McManus presents a DVD that clearly is a five star item. And hence a great buy for the ambitious guitars. Mainly because of these facts:

* McManus is a great teacher who adds interesting information concerning the history of the songs
* the instructional parts are shot from an angle, that makes it easy for the viewer to follow what McManus is actually doing
* the tabs are included (as a pdf on the DVD; so you basically print out what you need)
* there a quite a few songs to learn; check out "Bidh Clan Uillaidh" (e.g. on youtube), a great piece in open-tuning

* some pieces are quite difficult and maybe a little bit to "jiggish" and "reelish" (at least for my taste); nevertheless, great celtic fingerstyle pieces

I hope that I could help to "clarify" some of the other reviews. Tony, we'd like to have some more tab (stilling missing "Waltz of the Belugas") on more DVDs...
