Richard Thompson (O.B.E.) is one of the world's most celebrated and revered guitarists and songwriters. His playing encompasses Celtic and British traditional music, American country, rock 'n' roll and his own indefinable but widely admired (and imitated) style. He is a truly unique talent.
On this three-lesson instructional series, Richard breaks down his brilliant acoustic guitar style, demonstrating English, Scottish and Irish hornpipes, reels, Morris dances, pipe tunes and jigs, plus accompaniments, intros and solos for ten of his widely-sung original songs. He uses a variety of tunings and picking techniques (both fingerpicking and flatpicking) that can be used to enhance any acoustic guitar style.
Songs include: Banish Misfortune, Mrs. Gordon's Reel, Maggie Cameron, Inverness Gathering, Dargai, Poppy Leaf, Rakish Paddy, Jenny Lind, Saturday Night, Choice Wife, Strathspey, Don't Let A Thief Steal Into Your Heart, The Great Valerio, When The Spell Is Broken, Rockin' In Rhythm, Time To Ring Some Changes, I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight, Was She A Woman Or A Man?, Don't Renege On Our Love.
