Book 1 (lessons 1 to 18)

Tony O'Rourke

Book 1 covers Lessons 1 to 18.

At just over 50 pages in length, it includes commentary, as well as sheet music, tablature and in some cases additional accompaniment sheets.

The book is a downloadable PDF, and costs US $9.00. Payments (including those by credit card) are handled securely by PayPal.

You can download a free sample (includes Lesson 1. The Blackthorn Stick).

If you're unhappy with your purchase, contact us and we'll issue a full refund.

In March 2014 we updated the book to have larger print in the tablature, based on  reader feedback. If you bought the book prior to that and want a copy with the larger print, let us know and we'll email it to you.
