Website of my old friend (5-string banjo player & luthier) Phil Davidson who makes banjos and many other types of fine fretted instruments. He made my prized short-necked brass tone ring tenor banjo and has modified and personalised several
other of my mandola type instruments. A remarkable craftsman.

The home of celtic music on the internet, since 1994. Ceolas houses the largest online collection of information on celtic music, and has links to hundreds of related sites.


Custom fitted fibreglass instrument cases are rugged, well balanced and attractive hard shelled cases with interiors tailored to each instrument. Each half of every case is hand moulded in a single piece, using pigmented resin, with no seams to separate and colour that is integral to the fibreglass. Careful attention is paid to the placement of the leather handle in order to provide the optimum in comfort and balance.
I heartily endorse and recommend these fine cases -
These are definitely a must for any travelling musician - Davy Rogers
The OLGA On-Line Guitar Archive

All of the files in the OLGA archive were sent in by OLGA users just like you - if something you want isn't in the archive, tab it out and send it in!

This is the best online archive of TABs that I have found.

If you can't find the tune or song that you are searching for here,
I very much doubt that you will find it anywhere

"Accompanying Irish Music on Guitar"

A must read book for all guitarists who want to improve their backing style/s. Frank's well thought-out and presented guide to the accompaniment of Irish dance music on guitar is the new, comprehensive guide for guitar players everywhere.  A range of four different tunings is covered, along with suggestions on right hand styles suited to each tuning. There is also a great CD which comes with the book with Alan Kelly and Eilish O'Connor playing (tunes featured in the book) with and without the guitar accompaniment. The CD has great stereo separation. A very reasonably priced work.

Highly recommended by Davy Rogers
