Each arrangement comes with detailed playing instructions, a short section covering the tune’s history, chord diagrams, a look into the music theory used in its composition and both tablature and sheet music. There is also an audio folder included in the e-book download which contains slow play-throughs of all the arrangements, examples and explanations of the common Irish rhythms used and several other examples of techniques and features used in the collection. The ebook is provided in pdf format and the audio as mp3s, so both can be accessed on PCs, mobile phones, ipads, tablets etc. You can also get the paperback edition by clicking here.
