Guitar Noise Podcast #21 – "The Star of the County Down" (Part 1)

Our latest Guitar Noise Podcast begins a look at the Irish folksong, “The Star of the County Down.” Not to worry – we’ve prepared a “cheat sheet” for you:

Star of the County Down

First we go over the basic structure of the song and then work on creating a cool introduction for it, which is always a good thing as a good introduction can also serve as a nice interlude between the verses.

And speaking of the verses, we also start to look at how to come up with some interesting strumming ideas, fills and bass lines for the basic verse of this song.

As always, I’ll be walking you through each step, so come on along and join in the fun.
