I'm edging up to trying an anglo (I already play English quite well) and am concerned about getting off on the right foot. What with in row, cross row, C row home and G row home I figure I should get some guidance about teaching materials. I've done some searching here but haven't found much beyond "I like XXX." I realize this is a contentious issue, but surely many of you have opinions. BTW I've years of music making behind me in a variety of guises. I don't need anything that spends effort on notation or such things. I need information about the playing methods and tunes selected to guide the user through learning the method in question. My playing would probably be mostly in Celtic traditional musics (not just Irish), and as soon as I'm secure about an approach to the instrument I'll probably go to learning tunes by ear, and then use the teaching materials to delve into adding harmonies, drones and the like.
Thanks for your thoughts.
