Excellent In-The-Studio Recording. 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. B. Nicodemus/Amazon Customer Review --B.

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...
